[tei-council] Fwd: subcommittee on the whole mess: <idno>, <ident>, <ref>, <ptr>, @ref, and @key

I'm just forwarding Kevin's message to Council, because I think he's 
right. I don't think we've dealt very well with this issue yet, and I 
think a subcommittee is the only way forward. I'm happy to be on it, and 
I'd like Lou to be on it too, because I think we represent two poles of 
opinion with regard to the interchangeability or otherwise of <ident> 
and <idno>; also his historical knowledge on the reasons both <ref> and 
<ptr> exist will be invaluable. If a subcommittee with Lou and I on it 
could come up with a set of proposals, there's a fair chance it would 
get general acceptance by Council.

I don't think we should go to TEI-L at this stage, though; maybe later, 
when we're closer to a set of proposals.

You suggested at http://purl.org/TEI/fr/2493417 (where I've linked to
two other relevant tickes) that a subcommittee be formed.  I can't
commit to this, but I think you'll want to bring this to tei-council (or
even TEI-L, as with physical bibliographies) since not everyone
subscribes to all SF comments (I certainly don't!)
