Subject: RE: [emergency] FW: Suggestion: Add incidentKeyword to contentObject

I would agree with Renato, except that I know of no operational
implementations of the DE, other than the WAY previous and much
different implementation (2 years ago) that ComCARE implemented and DMIS
(and others) prototyped.  Those changes were the basis for what we
previously had out for comment so the "substantive change does not
apply. In the meantime, there are LOTS of implementations (including
ours) that have been put on hold waiting for a completed voting draft to
come out that can be used in an operation prototype.  The pent up
frustration is getting pretty serious.  Perfection IS the enemy of good

Not that I feel strongly about it, but we should be aware that the OASIS
TC process defines "Substantive Change" as:

   "a change to a specification that would require a compliant
application or
    implementation to be modified or rewritten in order to remain

This is undoubtedly the case for the current version of EDXL-DE.
