Subject: Changes in OASIS requirements since 1.0 was published

Aside from the conformance issues mentioned in my previous note, the following editorial changes should be incorporated going forward.


1)      The key words “MUST”, “MUST NOT”, “REQUIRED”, “SHALL”, “SHALL NOT”, “SHOULD”, “SHOULD NOT”, “RECOMMENDED”, “MAY”, and “OPTIONAL” in this document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

2)      Reference WSDL, XML, etc should be in an external document which can be machine readable. The standards document itself can still contain sample code. If any inconsistencies are found between the XML in the artifacts in the standards document and that in the external WSDL and XML, the external document is considered normative.

3)      We have been a little loose in using the OASIS artifact naming standards. We need to distinguish properly between working documents and committee drafts. Committee drafts are in turn distinguished from committee documents. Authors should see

4)      In general, we should use the current templates for documents as defined in http://docs.oasis-open.org/templates/


Meeting these requirements will be critical to meeting our goals of OASIS Standard rather than Specification
