In Paris we agreed that I would contact Paul Schaffner and Markus 
Flatscher to ask them to pick up this work.  They haven't responded, but 
yesterday at HASTAC 2011 two literature Ph.D. students presented on some 
work on physical bibliography in the TEI, in which they lamented the 
TEI's perceived lack of support in this area.  Andrew Prescott relayed 
some clarifying tweets from Lou, James, and me, and I spoke with the 
presenters afterwards, inviting them to take on this work with some 
guidance from me.  They both seemed keen to do so.  Will keep you 
posted, though you may end up hearing directly from them on TEI-L.

Hi Paul and Markus,

At the TEI Council meeting recently in Paris, it was mentioned that
there was once a Physical Bibliography Work Group (
http://www.tei-c.org/Activities/Workgroups/PB/ ) that never completed
its recommended revisions to P5.  You were mentioned as people with an
interest in this topic who might be interested in reviving this work and
completing it, but we also think an open call on TEI-L for participants
would be good.

What do you think?
