Members of the UBL,

TC Administration provides the following
comments for the public review of Â

1) In the beginning of Section 2, there is a
link to a resource at "<http://goo.gl/DgMAqy>http://goo.gl/DgMAqy.";

First, the Naming Directives state that "TCs
must not use URI aliasing by any means,
including ... constructing URIs for canonical
OASIS resources by using redirects supported by
services on other Internet domains (e.g.,

The main reason for this is to ensure
transparency. A redirected link like this seems
to hide the source you point to. We ask that you
replace this in subsequent editions with the
actual, physical link to the target.Â

Second, we ask why this content is separate? The
link appears to point to instructions that ought
to be documented in an approved work product. If
this documents rules that people need to follow
for some purpose, then it should not be kept in
some ad hoc location and document subject to
change or elimination without warning.Â

2) The URI for TC name in Front Matter is given
- should use https. The same issue applies to
the URIs in the Status section - for comments
and to the TC - both should use https:

3) Because this is a Committee Note - and thus
can have no normative, prescriptive content -
there can logically be no "Normative"
references. Please change the heading to
References and eliminate "Normative" and "Non-Normative."Â

4) In section 1.3 Normative references, the
first reference [BD-NDR] has a mismatch between
the visible URI and the actual link. The visible
link is to the CSD at
But the underlying link is to the CND
which is this document itself.

Please let us know if you have any questions on these.Â
