Subject: RE: [dita] Groups - Issue #12038 - Proposal: Acronyms and other Abbreviated Forms (IssueNumbe12038.html) uploaded

Some questions and comments on this proposal.

Is @id required on the abbreviated-form specialization or is the id just
used to make the element conrefable?

Does the use of the abbreviated-form specialization require the use of
conref or is that just the likely or recommended way that authors will
use it?

Is first or not first use determined using the @id on abbreviated-form
specialization or by pattern matching against some of the
abbreviated-form element's contents?  If pattern matching, which content
is used?

Are any of <expanded>, <short>, <surface-form> required within the
abbreviated-form specialization?  Can <expanded>, <short>,
<surface-form> be used outside of the abbreviated-form specialization?
If they can be used outside of abbreviated-form, the names seem too

I don't understand this statement "The abbreviated form element is
designed to be extended via specialization to reflect the actual form of
abbreviation, for example: . . .".  Does the example show a specialized
version of the abbreviated-form element?

The proposal is designed around an inline content model rather than a
definition and reference model. Would a definition and reference model
work better? 

How will this work for fallback generalization? Will the expanded and
surface-form content both be included in the output and the short form

Are these specializations to be included in a new domain specialization,
an existing domain specialization and, if so, which one, or somewhere

Would this be available for use in all of the "standard" DITA topic
types? In map types?
