Ken, my examples are never normative ;)

I'm not quite clear what do you mean by "the contributor". You mean the
person who writes the document? If so, it's not totally important, because
one would hope that the chair or secretary of the committee would catch
the error and correct it. Once a file leaves the hands of the contributor
it does not belong to him/her, it belongs to the committee.

"Obliged" is a very strong term when talking about extensions, as this is,
which are always gray areas. But, on the other hand, once I (the contributor)
send the file to the committee, doesn't matter what I call it, the
committee can use whatever convention it chooses to name it in its repository.
Thus, foo.htm -> ubl-gutentag-foo-1.52.html or some such :)

Yes, it broke during the Kavi transition and has not been restored. I will
try to get that to happen.
