Subject: Re: [oasis-member-discuss] Fwd: Membership and Public Review of OASISArtifact Standard Identification Scheme for Metadata

The intended end time for the review is 11:59 pm on 1 March 2006, US 
Eastern Standard Time.

This list is a good place to continue discussion on the issues raised, 
both before and after that date.

In my capacity as an OASIS Member I will be following up today on many 
of the comments already posted. I'd like to encourage a continuing 
discussion, not make this a half-duplex medium. I'm not trying to 
provoke argument, but a vigorous discussion to further expose the issues.

I am very pleased with the detailed and thoughtful comments to date. 
Remember that I am not making any statements for the TAB, but will be 
providing more background, motivation, and my personal comments in my 
future emails to this list on the ASIS unless otherwise stated.
