Subject: Issue #29: Bookmap updates and the glossary reference domains

I went searching to see what we had in the TC minutes about <glossarylist> and <glossref>:

08 May 2018
15. DITA 2.0 stage one proposals
Initial discussion:
Redefine <glosslist> in bookmap
https://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/dita/201804/msg00104.html (Kimber, 30 April 2018)
Eliot: glosslist as currently defined in bookmap says that it represents a generated glossary list and that's fine but there's no defined mechanism by which a tool could know how to generate glossaries. But if we also integrate the glossref domain in the way that Eric described then it makes sense to make glossref a child of glosslist. Then it would no longer be generated and we'd need to make it clear that using it to generate a little glossary is an acceptable alternative
Kris: Is this just a tweak to existing spec language or do we need a proposal?
Eliot: It may require a proposal, I haven't thought about it in more detail than in the email
Kris: I think you're maxed out with proposals right now
Kris: Is anyone on the call interested in moving this foward?
Eric: We might as well add it to mine because it will fall in together
Eliot: glosslist does allow multiple glossdefs so I think it's just spec language; just change the content model to allow topicref or glossref
Eric: That's how I would envision it

I could not find any other discussion.

I'm not sure that we need to include this in the "Bookmap updates" proposal, since <glosslist> currently does permit <topicref>. If an implementation integrate the glossary reference domain into their bookmap shell, they will be able to use <glossref> within <glosslist>.

The relevant question is "Does the TC want to integrate the glossary reference domain in the bookmap shell that the TC ships with DITA 2.0"? What would be the pros and cons?
