Subject: RE: [election-services] OASIS EML and CA SoS white paper for NIST -draft

Paper looks good thanks, go ahead and submit it.  Just one little spelling mistake.  On page 4 second para I think you'll find it's laissez faire  not liaise fair.

Subject: [election-services] OASIS EML and CA SoS white paper for NIST - draft


Attached is my cut at this.  If this looks good - then I plan to submit this on Tuesday if everyone feels it is statisfactory.

I'm also planning two more papers of similar length and level - that I'll probably just submit individually.  One on the EML 150 providing more technical details on what it can do - very slick map rendering possible there - and of course USA wide standard election districts (wow!). And then other on the use of templates and tools to accelerate use of OASIS EML v6.0 - the dictionary, the architecture and schema approach and the overall adaptability. Also how this applies to the work being done for NIEM.gov - as this I believe is important here.  I'm sensing NIST listening to general push back of "we don't want something too restrictive - we're still learning and changing".  Guess what folks - you will NEVER get standardization if you let that story play on! Whole areas of election records MUST be standard - you can't have 80% - has to be 100% - otherwise the lawyers have a field day.  The NIEM approach is to provide coordination and direction to avoid that.  NIST needs to learn from that.

Enough soap box on that.
Enjoy, DW
