VQ: Two concrete questions:
17:58:37 [ht]
1) Should we open an issue on tag soup vs. XML?
17:58:52 [ht]
2) Should we use our slot at the AC on this topic?
17:59:29 [ht]

(hmm... at some point I asked somebody to write up introducing lanuguage N+1 given languages 1...N are out there. Norm, does that rign a bell? I wonder which action, if any, that was related to.)
18:19:49 [ht]
NM: The motivation for microformats comes from the relative weight of the thing you're trying to do (add a phone number) and the cost of doing it (a namespace declaration and use which is twice the size of the phone number)
18:20:38 [ht]
... but to me that's a one end of a scale wrt which whole languages are at the other end
18:21:12 [ht]
DC: The key contrast is between doing things guerilla-style, or using a URI you get via a community-approved process
18:22:02 [ht]
TBL: And that leads on to the contrast between grounded-in-public-definitions and meaning-as-use
18:23:01 [ht]
NM: There is a difference between avoiding collision and using a public process

VQ: We can wait another week to decide about the AC meeting topic
18:26:15 [ht]
VQ: Wrt tag soup vs. XML -- let's return to that next week as well, in terms of how we take it forward (new issue vs. ...)
18:26:47 [ht]
TBL: I believe there's a strong desire that we give a report on what we've done
18:26:58 [ht]
DC: I object, that's a waste of time

"An XML data model can be seen as a mobile agent that carries with it selected business rules (e.g. bind statements in XForms) for interacting both with humans on the front-end and with a service-oriented architecture (SOA) on the back-end"
18:31:25 [ht]
HST: If I plan to do that, I will send a draft to this group before doing so
