Can I ask, did Xpointer get any discussion in Paris? I don't see any 
reference to it in the minutes.

There wasn't much of a conclusion to the email thread, as far as I can 
see. Looks a bit like we were simultaneously coming to the conclusions 
that (a) we should drop TEI Xpointer, and (b) it might not be that 
hard/expensive to implement after all.

Assuming there hasn't been more discussion and decision-making that I've 
missed, should we set up a small working group (containing at least 
Piotr, Martin, Hugh Cayless, and whoever else we think might be 
interested and/or competent) to discuss and make some concrete proposals 
for how to go forward. I certainly see people who care about the aims of 
the xpointer scheme, whether or not they think this is the correct 
implementation of it.
