Subject: GKH's latest thoughts on UBL modeling, deployment, customization and minor versioning

Fellow UBL TC members,

I have finally got around to updating my thoughts 
about UBL modeling with respect to deployment, 
customization and minor versioning of revisions 
to the vocabulary.  Here is version 0.5 of my document:


It is my input to Mavis and Mike regarding customizations.

It is my input regarding the Singapore 
face-to-face UBL TC meeting discussions of compatibility vs. conformance.

It is my input regarding a mechanism methodology 
for minor-versioning of 2.1, 2.2 and 2.x 
vocabularies.  Note that my proposal does not 
mesh with OASIS policy on namespace 
minor-versioning, so I'm hoping that the 
committee can see the benefits of my proposal 
would warrant seeking dispensation from OASIS to allow us to use it.

I see it is all as related which is why all three 
inputs are in one document.  But because of that 
it is a lengthy document (sorry for that).  I 
wanted to try and justify all of my proposals so 
that readers are not uncomfortable with the 
concepts.  When I presented some of this at the 
Montréal face-to-face UBL TC meeting there was, 
understandably, some unease about my proposal 
without me being able to back it up with examples and description.

This is only a discussion document for 
input.  For readers of the archive, this in no 
way represents any consensus or position by the UBL TC.

By getting it out early I hope those attending 
the Manhattan face-to-face UBL TC meeting will 
have a chance to review it before the meeting in 
order to engage in productive discussion 
regarding the viability of the proposals.

Of course we can discuss any of this on the UBL 
TC mail list between now and then, especially to 
get the input from those who are unable to attend the Manhattan face-to-face.

I'm looking forward to discussing these ideas, 
*especially* if we can shoot them down by seeing 
things that I cannot see because I'm too close to 
it.  We have important decisions coming up and 
only if we try to break proposals will we know that they'll be resilient.
