Subject: "DITA 1.3: Why Three Editions?": Statement about DITA 2.0

Heads up -- I will be asking at today's TC meeting for any objections to the following statement about DITA 2.), which is included in the "DITA 1.3: Why Three Editions?" committee note:

DITA 2.0

While work on DITA 2.0 is in the very early stages, there is general consensus among the DITA Technical Committee on the following points:

Architectural redesign
DITA 2.0 will provide an opportunity for the DITA Technical Community to revisit and redesign aspects of the architecture that are less than optimal, such as chunking.
Backwards compatibility
DITA 2.0 will not be backwards compatible. For all the DITA 1.x releases, the DITA Technical Committee has gone to great pains to ensure that it did not add designs or features that might break existing implementations. For DITA 2.0, the DITA Technical Committee plans to relax this restriction, so that it can revisit some early design choices and remove deprecated elements. The DITA Technical Committee will minimize disruption and provide clear migration paths to ease transition to DITA 2.0.
The DITA Technical Committee plans to continue the practice of designing increasingly targeted releases and editions.
