Subject: FW: [dita] allowing appendices to be grouped

Hi all,

This question came up on the DITA TC list this week and I'd like to
solicit input from the Adoption TC on whether this is a wide-spread
requirement. Perhaps we could discuss this at our next meeting.

Please let me have your thoughts via email or prepare to discuss

Subject: [dita] allowing appendices to be grouped

We have some customers who want to be able to group their appendices in
their bookmap and have a topichead that shows up in the ToC for the
group of appendices.

This would parallel the way one can group chapters in a part.

In fact, the first suggestion was to allow appendix in part.  This would
be an acceptable solution for our customers.

Another solution is to add a specialization of topicref called
"appendices" (or whatever) and change the content of bookmap to be:

<!ENTITY % bookmap.content
                       "(((%title;) | 
                         ((%appendices;)? | (%appendix;)*),

where appendices has a content model of (%appendix;)*.

Can the DITA TC consider this issue and see if either or both of these
solutions is something we can do to bookmap?
