Subject: FW: Official Inquiry: Removing non-normative appendix as errata
FYI, Mary's response. I have already told her that we want to go forward with the Errata without this change. Note the part about the IANA request going thru OASIS TC Admin.

You couldn't 'drop' it per se since it would appear in the original spec. You could, I imagine, declare it null and void and if producing a merged spec replace the text with the words [REMOVED] or similar? That is to say I would have no objection ;) Does that mean you don't want me to process the Errata request yet? As a sidenote, please note that all correspondence with IANA should go through OASIS TC Admin - so if you send me the necessary bits I can forward.
