Subject: Re: [chairs] Unique OASIS document identifiers

(Unfortunately, as of right now I have ever-more-limited time for 
further updates to the writeup and the discussion it entails.  But I'm 
very happy for someone else to pick up the next round of editing if the 
chairs community wants to change the proposal.  Any takers?  I can send 
you the DocBook source...)

The current proposal has charter / draft / cs / oasis.  If we're opening 
this up again, and especially if we're reopening the lowercase thing, 
that's a lot of variables.  For just the third position in that list 
alone, there's cs, CS, spec, Spec, cttespec, CtteSpec, tcspec, TCspec, 
TCSpec, ...

But I believe that we already had consensus around "cs" (seeing as the 
proposal went out in its supposedly-final form on 25 Feb, having been 
reviewed starting on 11 Feb), so rather than asking if people can't live 
with "TC Spec" (which has a space and so isn't quite in the right 
formulation yet), I think it's more appropriate to ask if people can't 
live with "cs".
