Subject: Re: [dita] ITEM: Cross-references to Topicheads and Implicit Title-onlyTopics

OK, the good news is that means we can agree that DITA 1.2 scope stays the same.

I suggest we take an item for DITA 1.3 to formalize expected behaviors for hrefs to various target types. This came up as a requirement on dita.xml.org a while ago as well.

At that point we can resume the argument as to whether the use of keyref must be mapped to some particular combination of attributes in xref and topicref, or not.
