Subject: RE: [dita] On the DITAVAL file

I too think that the DITAVAL file as it is with the ability to do revision marking and flagging. We get a lot of questions from clients who would like to do that and see the benefit of it. I also would like to use it and would do so if we can get the transforms in the open toolkit to work correctly out of the box.
I do see a great need for this functionality though.

Subject: [dita] On the DITAVAL file

What do we want to accomplish with the DITAVAL file? I see it as useful for specifying deliverable content, much like a DITA map, but this is only the filtering part of the file. When we (Idiom) discussed supporting DITAVAL, it just seemed overengineered when all people were asking for was conditional text. Nobody was requesting flagging nor revision marking.
Is anyone using the revprops part of DITAVAL? Or flagging? These parts determine appearance, not content. I'm just trying to get a handle on the different applications of DITAVAL.
