Subject: Need to clarify spec language around key resolution (Was" RE: [dita] Groups - DITA TC Minutes: February 01, 2011 (TCMinutes_02-01-2011.txt) uploaded")

I strongly agree with Paul here.

Eliot's article contains marvelous, well-developed content that will truly
help the community. But we must clarify the wording in the spec since
different people reading it come up with conflicting ideas about how keys
should be resolved.

Regarding publishing Eliot's discussion of key resolution
by the Adoption TC, I admit to not having read Eliot's
latest, but I think we need to distinguish between 
clarifying what's in the DITA spec and best practices.

If someone writes a best practices explication of how
keys work (and that might be a version of Eliot's paper),
then it makes sense to have that processed as an
Adoption TC deliverable.

But that should not be confused with making sure the
Dita spec is clear about this issue, and that is something
the Dita TC should be sure to address in 1.3 if not in
an erratum to 1.2.
