Subject: Re: Notification of Committee Draft vote from WSS TC


Thanks for the notice. Could you please clarify for me the TC's intent 
of the authoritativeness of these errata? The TC web page describes them 
as non-normative, but all three errata documents have sections labeled 
as "normative".

If the intent is that the errata are lists of things to be fixed in the 
next revision then I have no problem. But if the intent is to override 
any part of the approved OASIS Standard then the errata themselves would 
have to be approved by the OASIS membership. In other words, the TC's 
CD-level approval cannot override the membership's OS-level approval.

I'll look forward to receiving your request to start a public review on 
the additional profiles. Thanks for the heads-up.
