    - #15 Allow role names to be namespaced: Started discussion during Dec 13 
        TC meeting, but ran out of time. Discussion continued from where we 
	left off. Don logged the details of the discussion on the Wiki 
	discussion document.
        DECISION -- Not in scope for DITA 1.1.
    - Don proposes adding a new tracking item for future Translation SC 
        input to 1.1 scope. No objections, Don adds it to the end of the "off
	the list" list.

- Review updated consensus for Higher Priority Items:
    - http://wiki.oasis-open.org/dita/%22DITA_1%2e0%2e5%22_higher-priority_items
    - Don - how do we want to use this list?
        Paul P - treat this list as priority over other 1.1 items.
        Don proposes getting these 1.0.5 items out as a release candidate and then 
        continue working on the other 1.1 items as part of the full official 1.1 

    - Michael P moves to accept the disposition in the table, Paul Prescod seconds,
        no objections, accepted by acclamation.

    - Don - 4 months minimum to get 1.1 out as a release candidate. 
        Looking at our roadmap schedule, we should use this list as 1.1 target 
	for release in summer 06 timeframe.
    - Discussions...
    - Proposal to include #12 [Make universal attributes completely universal] 
        in 1.1 too, since the design has been approved. Don proposes to defer 
	adding translation to the list until next week, but not to defer it 
	to 1.2 at this time.
    - ACTION ITEM: Gershon & Don to inform SC via email on urgency of completing this 
        part ASAP, preferably sooner than the 1 month previously proposed.
    - Further discussions in an attempt to reduce the number of items on the 
        high priority list...
    - DECISION: remove #44 off every list, thereby maintaining its deprecated 
        status until 1.3, where we'll vote on removing it
    - Paul proposes to remove #35 from the list. Proposals follow to also 
        remove #19 and #14. 
    - Michael P proposes to name the release that includes only the high priority
        list 1.1 and all other items that were slated for 1.1 will be 
	implemented in 1.2.
    - Paul moves to narrow the scope of DITA 1.1 to the revised short-list and 
        move the rest to 1.2, Paul G seconds, no objections, motion approved by acclamation.
	DITA 1.1 will contain the following items:

	- #20 Extensible metadata attributes

	- #38 Bookmap / bkinfo revision 

	- #45 Add See, See Also indexing elements 

	- #45a Add sort order indexing elements (Joanne Hackos, others?)
