Subject: Notes in Lightweight DITA

We discussed a number of options in our last SC call - feedback/suggestions/votes needed to help us move forward.

Option 1: We implement <note>just as in full DITA, but with a subset of potential values - eg caution, warning, danger, trouble, notice, or no type (generic "note") and a constrained content model (maybe just <p>, <ul>, or <ol>)

Option 2: We implement <notelist> (or some other name slightly different from <note>) as a specialization of <dl> with a <dlentry> representing a note. The text of the <dlterm> could trigger specialized behaviors (if it's from the short list like caution, warning, etc.) or be passed through as is (if it's not recognized by either default or override processes)

Option 3: We implement <note-type>as a specialized phrase element (specialized off of either <ph> or <b>) available in any <p> that turns the <p> into a note. As with the dlentry option, the type of the note would be entered as text that could trigger specialized behaviors if recognized, or be used to apply a custom label.
