Subject: RE: [chairs] Oasis document identifiers - conclusion?

This is a long and involved thread - and very relevant - but I only want to
comment on one portion:

Well, if everything really says "draft", the keyword could be left out
entirely because it doesn't add anything! :-)  But just in case, let's
play out my question and assume that my brilliant arguments above have
convinced you that we need to reflect a Committee Spec status with a
keyword.  Then, the order would seem to matter.  Is this preferable?


Or is this?


Drummond replies:

Classic database sorting decision. The latter makes the most sense. Imagine
searching long lists of TC docs from many TCs. To have them grouped by TC
seems a lot more intuitive than by status.
