Subject: RE: [dita] Editorial Suggestion: Formally Define the term "root map"

For what it's worth, in the new release of Arbortext Editor we use the
term "Key Context" to refer to the root map containing key definitions
when talking about keyref resolution.

Subject: [dita] Editorial Suggestion: Formally Define the term "root

Had an interesting discussion with George Bina from SynchroSoft on the
general issue of how to talk about "the map that establishes the
context for key references". He wants to have a standard-defined term he
use in his product to refer to this map so that it's clear to users what
he's talking about.

We looked through the current 1.2 spec and determined that we use the
"root map" consistently to mean the key-resolution-context-defining map
we never actually define the term "root map" formally, although it is
in the formal definition of the term "key resolution context".

I would like us to think about whether it makes sense, or is even
to define "root map" in a coherent way.
