Subject: Re: [dita] Suggestion for full package name

I came across the phrase "omnibus edition" reading about publishers and thought it might convey the same idea as "comprehensive package" but perhaps a bit more accessible. We don't need to go into pork barrel and earmark connotations for overstuffed legislative proposals.

I propose adding a "kitchen-sink" domain only so we can exclude it from the all-inclusive package.

I propose "all-inclusive".
I'm hoping it is one tick better for globalization than "comprehensive", and to me it doesn't have the same emotional baggage (as compared with, e.g., "complete") of "if I don't have this one, I'm not really doing DITA".
