RE: Moving the list

the subscription source

It isn't.  My point was to document that 
XML-Dev does have value to the OASIS membership.

There are no guarantees that a move will change 
anything but the subscription source.  I do 
think the move will be a body blow to the 
credibility of OASIS, one that may not be 
felt immediately, but will be felt.  OASIS 
provides value to the web community at large.
It is the organization founded by members of 
the markup community, not the bigcos.  So 
it has a certain heritage and that has value. 
What value is there in injuring it if most 
of this problem is either technical and 
can be fixed, or hurt pride and can heal.

If a move is needed, let it be deliberate 
and well-thought through.
