[tei-council] Criteria for TEI Repository Inclusion

I agree with Laurent : the Council should concern itself with 
developments which are strategic for the TEI as a whole -- things which 
enable the TEI to do its business properly. ODD itself is in that 
category, clearly. Light, and Tite (because of the tie-in with the 
membership deal which the Board has confected) are strategic because 
they are regarded as typical generic TEI applications  by the community. 
By contrast there are huge numbers of TEI users (and I say it with 
sorrow) who are and can remain blissfully ignorant of the delights of 
Epidoc or Enrich.

A TEI solution for digital publishing is a different matter -- possibly 
intermediate between the two. Most existing use cases (and there are 
some) seem to start from TEI Lite and tweak it a bit (or a lot) so there 
may well be a case for this coming into the Council's remit.  I assume 
that it's on the brief of the Publishing SIG to work towards a proposal 
for a common TEI profile, which could form the basis of such a thing.
