Subject: New release of Akoma Ntoso 3.0 (23 June 2014 - OASIS CSD11)


Please find attached the new release of Akoma Ntoso, dated 23 June 2014. This is another draft release for what is meant to become version 3.0 of Akoma Ntoso. 

Also please notice that this release contains two pieces of work, the XML Schema, which is meant to become delivery 4 of the OASIS working group, and the Release Notes, which contains information meant to become part of Release 3 of the OASIS Working Group, and not of delivery 4. 




Differences between release 23/06/2014 (CSD11 AN 3.0) and 16/04/2014 (CSD09 AN 3.0)
This release contains just ONE modification from CSD 10, namely, that attribute eId has been made optional even in attribute group idreq. This means that attribute eId is now always optional.
Nonetheless, the correct reading of this choice is subtler and not so straightforward: since CSD11 a new concept of layered compliance level has been introduced in Akoma Ntoso, whereby one can choose one of five levels of compliancy with the standard. In particular, the adoption of the Akoma Ntoso Naming Convention for document IRIs and ids as described in sections 7 and 8 of these Release Notes has been associated to compliance level 2. This means that compliant documents can now decide not to use the syntax given (and stop at compliance level 1). In this case, no constraints can be imposed on the syntax of the id attributes. For this reason, and to allow document collections to use reliably the naming convention as specified reason, it has been decided that you cannot use attributes eId and wId unless you adopt the corresponding id syntax as described in section 7 of these release notes.
Therefore, the rule of optionality and requiredness of the ids is as follows:
a)     Attribute GUID may be used for all compliancy levels, and no constraint on is syntax is imposed.
b)    Documents seeking compliancy level 2 or greater must use attributes eId and wId according to the constraints and rules expressed in section 7 of these notes.
c)     Documents seeking compliancy level 1 may use attributes eId and wId, and if they do use them, they must use them according to the constraints and rules expressed in section 7 of these notes.
d)	Documents seeking compliancy level 1 and not complying with the constraints and rules for identifiers expressed in section 7 of these notes must not use attributes eId and wId.
