Document Name: DRAFT-02-21-13-Minutes-RIM-Subcommittee-1.doc

At the Feb 21st, 2013 meeting of the Reference Information Model
Subcommittee, the members discussed the following topics:

1. TOPIC: Guidance for usage of ?UNKNOWN?: ?If an element is required and
a list of default values is provided, the list should contain the value
?UNKNOWN?; however, practitioners should only utilize this value when the
element value is truly unknown.?

2. TOPIC: Recommendation for usage of ?Layers?: ?Layers (extensions) are
recommended for usage across the EDXL family, along with Profiles
(constraints), and the RIM is in the process of generating guidance
documents on these.?

3. TOPIC: Recommendation for additional policy documentation:
?Organizations, communities and governments at the various national,
regional and local levels should define the guidance and policy needed for
using Layers and Profiles. Changes to the body of the formal standard
itself, e.g. CAP, should be limited to those changes needed to serve the
entire community. National, regional, or local concerns should be addressed
through the use of Extensions and Profiles.?What are the implications of
adopting and using the ?Layers? concept as an extension mechanism in EDXL
