As requested by TEI Council, James Cummings and I met to discuss this ticket. We concluded that the advantages of a special global attribute class are outweighed by the considerable decrease in special-casing in ODD-processing, and ambiguity about when att.global applies. Increased transparency will pay off in the long term, though we think we need to investigate the effect on some existing ODDs. We recommend that the Council endorse the proposal.
