Subject: Correction policy?


I have been looking at the comments that have been coming in, mostly 
from MURATA Makoto (FAMILY Given) and there are several cases where 
attributes names in the prose disagree with those in the schema.

I don't recall our having a policy on the direction of correction of 
such errors. We may have one that I simply don't recall.

I would assume that we correct "to" the schema. Yes? Reasoning that it 
is far more likely that someone has relied upon the schema and the names 
it uses in implementing ODF and so correcting in that direction will 
mean the least disruption possible. It may mean that we have some ugly 
names/prose but I would rather have that (at least to some degree) 
rather than possibly breaking with some implementation.

Not suggesting a hard and fast rule, but a general principle.

Hope everyone is having a great day!
