The main point I was making is that at best they publish a best guess of the completion date. There is no plan, in the sense that there is no project manager who has a set of committed resources that s/he can deploy in order to achieve a given goal. The process is driven by the need to achieve "consensus", and is therefore intrinsically unpredictable. > > The SVG WG, for example, publishes a Roadmap (see > http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/Roadmap.html).

Interesting - I always thought that the difference between a plan and a roadmap was that a plan has dates and a roadmap doesn't. My knowledge of the American language is clearly letting me down again. Michael Kay XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
