Re: Realistic proposals to the W3C?

Certainly the W3C wants to "push" its own Buzz Words to increase the visibility of its members. However, as a compromise position, it should at least catalogue similar (perhaps competing) non-W3C approaches -- SAX and RELAX come to mind. Of course, these would be marked clearly as an "ADVISORY" notice, just as a "NOTE" is clearly differentiated from a RECOMMENDATION. > CLARITY OF SPECS > > Insist on an open source reference implementation? Absolutely. Only, call me strange, but I would go one step further and say that the reference implementation *is* the recommendation and that any other explanatory documents are secondary. So, I woud not worry about the clarity of the recommendation text. From the reference implementation authors can compete on the best way to describe it -- be it English or French or Structured English or some formal language. What ever floats their boat. Let's have capitalism here. What these recommendations do is describe an automated process. I can't think of a better way to express this than actual computer code. Best, Clark
