Subject: DOCBOOK: Re: affiliation changes that were supposed to be in 4.0

/ Mike Brown <mike@skew.org> was heard to say:
| The TDG reference page for <affiliation> says
|   In DocBook V4.0, Affiliation will be removed from some of the places in 
|   which it now occurs. Instead of appearing inside Author, for example, a new 
|   wrapper element will be created to hold Author, AuthorBlurb, and 
|   Affiliation.
| It looks to me like <affiliation> and <authorblurb> are still part of the
| content model of <author>. Are there still plans to change this?

The TC backed off that change at the last minute because we really
hadn't worked out the details of the wrapper. I don't think we've
evaluated the issue again since we added personname and personblurb.

In short: I think some changes are still likely, but it's not clear
what they'll be. And the probably can't occur before 6.0 now.

                                        Be seeing you,
