ACTION: Norm to follow-up

|    495853 add 'caption' to itemizedlist content-model

Rejected: lack of response

|    558443 include storage info in metadata

Continued. (Bob is investigating.)

|    562343 <packagename> element

Package seems to be a highly overloaded term.

We have two issues here: packagename as an inline and the ability to
identify the package that a class (documented with classsynopsis)
belongs to.

WRT the inline, we'll add 'packagename' as class value on systemitem
for the inline case.

ACTION: Norm to continue discussion of packagename as part of

|    564776 process/service/daemon/server markup

We have a long-standing tension between inlines and class values on
system. Adding lots of elements seems fairly heavyweight. Adding class
values "hides" them from new users.

It's easy to add new class values, so we'll do that and let users who
are finding that markup inconvenient demonstrate that they are needed
broadly enough to warrant their own inline.

We'll add 'process', 'service', 'server', and 'daemon' as class values
to systemitem.

|    565637 Associate non-inline image with link

Leave pending until we settle our generalized linking questions.

|    565716 URL and URN markup

ACTION: Mike to follow-up to find out a little more about the users needs.

We'll add 'uri' to the list of class values on systemitem. Subclassing of the
URIs can be done role in the short term.

|    565905 Add xrefstyle attribute

Continued: Bob is investigating this.

|    570068 Online values for pubwork

Add class values: emailmessage, webpage, newsposting.
