Following from the discussion on the subject of the content model of 
tei:subst by a subgroup commissioned by Council in Chicago, three 
tickets have been created or updated respectively, detailing our 
recommendations for going forward. (The subgroup contained myself, Elena 
and James, and we asked Marjorie Burghart and Torsten Schaßan to join us.)

(1) http://purl.org/TEI/FR/3393244: restrict content model of tei:subst 
to tei:add and tei:del (discussion required regarding speed of 
deprecation of other currently allowed elements)

(2) http://purl.org/TEI/FR/2859355: the creation of a new tei:substJoin 
element (semantic sugar for tei:join[@result='subst']), to cater for 
cases where text or other elements intervene between deletion(s) and 

(3) http://purl.org/TEI/FR/3080015: allow milestoneLike elements in 
tei:subst for cases where a substitution spans a line (I disagreed, but 
the group were otherwise unanimous in agreeing to this inclusion)

We would like Council to approve parts 2. and 3., but more discussion 
(and probably a survey of the community) are needed to resolve 1.
