While updating the PWG Semantic Model and adding some missing MustHonor
attributes I came across a bit of an issue. I was adding MustHonor to
the elements directly under DocumentProcessing. When I got to elements
like CoverBack and MediaCol I noticed that some of the contained
elements are also directly under DocumentProcessing (e.g. Media,
MediaType). It seems rather inconsistent to control fidelity for a
subset of a collection's members.
The issues comes down to which elements can be decorated with MustHonor
and what limitations on attribute names are made for the
My opinion is that it MustHonor should be placed on every processing
element and any job template attribute can be used in
job-mandatory-element. I would expect that fidelity would work similar
to documents inheriting job level attributes in multi-document jobs.
The "MustHonor" attribute at a node in the tree (e.g., MediaCol) applies
to all subordinate nodes (e.g., MediaTooth) unless explicitly
overridden. The same semantics would apply for job-mandatory-elements.
