I have already posted regarding D-AC017 giving my view of where this is and
what might best happen, and asking for discussion.  So far there has been no


I believe that I was the former "champion" of this thing.

Basically I'm willing to let it go and it seems to me that the sense of the
group is moving this way, with the exception that I am REALLY opposed to
letting go completely the subject of reliable messaging.  If D-AC017 went
away there would be no mention of reliable messaging whatever in the
requirements, and I think that this would be very inappropriate given the
level of interest and priority that is widely put on this subject.  So I am
basically proposing getting rid of D-AC017 but adding something specifically
about reliable messaging.

Subject: Champions for Draft-status requirements?

In the draft of the Requirements doc at
we still have some goals and CSF's with a "D-" in
front of them.  I took an action item to try to
find champions who would look up the discussions
on these and try to guide us to a definite resolution.
You may find that they were resolved, and the
resolution had not made it into the document.  

It looks like there are 4 goals with draft status, and
three of those have CSF's with draft status associated
with them: D-AC001, D-AC016, D-AC017, and D-AC018.
Also, AC006 is agreed on, but some of its CSFs are 
still in draft status.

It would be nice to have volunteers to take these
on.  I would expect it to take about one hour for each
to dig through the archives, look at the votes and
comments, and propose a sensible resolution.

D-AC001 provides a complete reference framework that encourages the
development of interoperable software products from multiple vendors and
provides a defensible basis for conformance and interoperability test

architecture in a standardized way.

D-AC001.2 -Ensures that the development of standards-based technologies
identify conformance in such a way that testing software can be
