Subject: Re: [chairs] updates Kavi status


That reminds me of a general outstanding issue: The current Kavi default 
settings seem to conflict with the strong OASIS preference for openness 
and visibility.


Could the "share" options both be selected by default?  Even better, 
could the ability to make documents hidden or private to a TC be removed?
