Subject: RE: [dita] MachineryTask Domain

It was me who asked.  In general I think making the domain more general is a good idea. If that isn't done and someone wants something similar in another topic type, they will be forced to create a new parallel domain. And that is something to be avoided.

But having said the above, my concern and my question during yesterday's call was based on a misunderstanding on my part which was straightened out. The name Machinery Task Domain suggested to me that the domain was only available for use with a Machinery Task.  I was comfortable once I learned that the domain was available for use with any task.
