My (limited) understanding of "public domain" is that anyone can do anything with a PD document, including scraping off the original author's name and replacing it with others or modifying the content to the detriment of the author(s) intentions. This could happen without malice - the commonest might be abbreviating a document which changed the intention of the author. A good example of this - which I appreciate and respect - is that Jon Bosak requires that his Shakespeare/Religion XML examples not be modified. My feeling is that "reference" documents like APIs should also not be modified, certainly not by unmarked deletions. P. xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers. To post, mailto:xml-dev@i...
