Subject: FW: [members] "Keyword Guidelines for OASIS Specifications and Standards" from the OASIS Technical Advisory Board is now available



Section 8 (FAQ), item 5 reads:


Is "MAY NOT" a keyword?


No, although there is an example of "MAY NOT" in an OASIS specification.


Note: When evaluating and, or, or n-of, it MAY NOT be necessary to attempt a full evaluation of each argument in order to determine whether the evaluation of the argument would result in "Indeterminate".


In a note, which is non-normative text, keywords should not appear. Instead of "MAY NOT," the text should read: "may not."


This is from the XACML Core spec, A.3.5, line 4259. I guess we should add this to the errata.

OASIS members,


The OASIS Technical Advisory Board (TAB) has published "Keyword Guidelines for OASIS Specifications and Standards." 



This short document is intended to assist OASIS authors and editors in the proper use of normative keywords (RFC2119 or ISO). It is written to assist editors in using keywords consistently so that the meaning of a specification is clear and unambiguous, ensuring consistent implementation of its normative content.


You can find the document at https://www.oasis-open.org/policies-guidelines/keyword-guidelines. It is linked from the OASIS Policies and Guidelines page at https://www.oasis-open.org/policies-guidelines and from the TC Administration page at https://www.oasis-open.org/resources/tcadmin.



Our thanks to the members of the TAB for their work on this document.
