Subject: RE: [emergency] Statement of Use

OASIS changed the rules here from previously - when ANY statement of use was acceptable.
Now they want some level of conformance clauses in the specification itself.
A specification that is approved by the TC at the Public Review Draft, Committee Specification or OASIS Standard level must include a separate section, listing a set of numbered conformance clauses, to which any implementation of the specification must adhere in order to claim conformance to the specification (or any optional portion thereof).*
They have some samples of such conformance clauses they have in mind.
I'm inclined to agree with Rex - that creating actual XML instances for your own use purposes - coupled with validation and documentation that forinstance a CAM template can then enforce against those samples - should cover off a use statement - in that this shows that the specification actually works for a real scenario.
I believe that is the most important thing these statements provide - is that people know the specification has actually been tried in practice - rather than just being entirely theoretical.
Thanks, DW
