Subject: Re: [chairs] your input on OASIS functionality enhancements


I would add another wish - the ability to add XML instances and XSD
instances to
the registry along with PDF files - under a node in the tree for
"Use Cases and Examples"  these files and accompanying examples
could then be searchable - which would be very useful.

Yes - we can post these at Kavi - but they are not as easy to find or
reference then.

Thanks, DW
