Subject: CLARIFICATION: normativity in XCF chapter.
In the CD2 text , the DOM chapter (Ch.5) was missing the normal declaration, right after the chapter header, whether the chapter was normative or informative. Therefore I added, "This section and its subsections are normative, unless otherwise indicated." It seems to me that each of 5.1 and 5.2 is informative -- the do not contain any conformance requirements against which metafiles or implementations can be tested. So to each of these I added, "This subsection is informative (non-normative)." Okay? Btw, if you want to comment further on this topic, please have a look first at the "Normativity" subsection (A.5) of the Conformance Clause appendix , Appendix A. Added for the CD2 text, A.5 is a beginning at further clarifying what is normative and informative, and how conformance requirements are expressed and recognized (it derives from work done in W3C's QAWG). -Lofton.  http://docs.oasis-open.org/webcgm/v2.0/Overview20.html  http://docs.oasis-open.org/webcgm/v2.0/WebCGM20-DOM.html  http://docs.oasis-open.org/webcgm/v2.0/WebCGM20-Appendix.html#webcgm_conformance
