Subject: RE: [dita] Prototype DITA 1.1 DTDs

To summarize: the reason you would like version-dependent public identifiers is because you are nervous that DITA 1.1 will not be 100% backwards compatible with DITA 1.0. Is that right? If it turned out to be 100% backwards compatible then you would not mind installing DITA 1.1 for your translators to use with DITA 1.0 and 1.1 documents.

Hi Paul,

You are right. If the final DITA 1.1 results 100% backwards compatible then I won't mind if the public identifiers and namespaces remain the same.

But, have you considered that sometime in the future there may be a new version of DITA, namely 1.2 or 2.0, introducing incompatible changes? IMHO, it would be better to start versioning DITA now.
