Given certain recent experiences with completely different bodies,
I think that would result in no disposition whatsoever.  We can
ask for it to be made a Technical Resolution, like


but nothing in the bylaws either countenances TRs or prohibits
Standards, so why not go for it? 

Actually, what's being done with the output of the now-closed
Tables TC?  That should probably be our guide.  I see nothing
in the OASIS library.  The old SGML version was a TR.
