Subject: Re: [office] Proposal for Advanced Document CollaborationSubcommittee


Just came up for air and saw your post.

Do you think the charter should mention the role of meta-data in

Just so they can tend to that while working on pure change tracking sort
of issues? 

And that might attract people interested in the annotation side of
document work as well. 

Don't want it to get too broad but thought that might be a useful

Hope you are having a great day!
