Subject: RE: [chairs] Draft Jan 2009 TC Process changes summary

To side moreover with Ken and JoAnn,

The DITA TC has a number of subcommittees staffed by subject matter experts
for domain-specific content. Some of their deliverables to the DITA TC
which they have requested to be published within the DITA TC scope consists
of best practices or guidelines for their respective communities,
glossaries or term lists, and other collateral that goes with the use of
the DITA Standard within the domain but which is not of the TC's interest
to enshrine as part of the standard. We've recently had discussion within
the TC about "non-normative" as a possible descriptor for such ancillary
documents that fall in the scope of community-driven SCs to create, but are
outside of the TC's direct charter. We are generally in favor of the
process for an expedited but managed vetting process for such documents.

In the UBL TC not only do we have standards but also customization
guidelines, naming and design rules, and other adjunct documents that
help users work with the OASIS Universal Business Language.  These
documents need the authority of the committee, but they don't specify
anything that would be construed "a standard".
