Subject: Re: [docbook] DocBook Technical Committee Meeting Minutes: 15 July2009


thank you so much for your comments. I'll bring this information up at 
our next meeting. Perhaps you would also be interested in joining the 
meeting to provide additional comments? Let me know and I'll send 
meeting info.

As for the similarity of the models, we wanted to enable semantic 
distinction in the elements, but provide a common framework for how 
lines would be marked up. Additional elements could be added as you have 
indicated, but we did not want to add so many specific elements to be 
too restrictive.This is why the db.all.blocks pattern is also allowed 
between lines and linegroups.

Thanks and best regards,


Scott Hudson
