Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (EMERGENCY-24) Parallel-track CAP 1.3 and 2.0

Art Botterell created EMERGENCY-24:

             Summary: Parallel-track CAP 1.3 and 2.0
                 Key: EMERGENCY-24
                 URL: https://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/EMERGENCY-24
             Project: OASIS Emergency Management TC
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: CAP 
            Reporter: Art Botterell

A decade into the formalization of CAP we now face the legacy dilemma... do we limit development to incremental steps that maintain back-compatibility with earlier versions, or do we risk limiting interoperability in order to leverage fully the experience and lessons learned of the last ten years?  

Fortunately we don't actually have to choose; we can have both.  At this point I believe CAP adoption is broad and deep enough globally to tolerate and even benefit from a two-track approach.  

Competition between the old and the new will happen naturally... and inevitably.  The only real question is whether the next-generation alternative comes from within OASIS or from some other source.
