Subject: Re: [kmip] Groups - Proposal for modification to Conformance Section (Conformance_Clause_Proposal_V3.doc) uploaded

Hi Bruce,

  That's not quite true. A TC doesn't cease its work until it has either agreed to dissolve or until it finishes the work items described in the Charter. Most TCs continue to update that list of work items as time processes and further refinements/enhancements/additions/modifications/etc are deemed appropriate. The only thing a TC cannot do is expand its scope of work. Most TCs produce multiple iterations of a spec (v1.0, v1.1, v.1.2, v2.0), profiles, and other ancillary works in support of the specs themselves.

Standards are like parachutes: they work best when they're open.

Overall, I like the proposal.

However, I think one key provision that will be problematic with this proposal is Section 13.3.
In general, there are no standing committees at OASIS.  Once a standard is completed, the TCs cease their work.  So I'm not sure how one would get a profile approved when the TC has dissolved.  And since this seems to be the engine that drives this mechanism, I'm not sure where that leaves us.
