Harry,

Per the discussion today at the SM telecon on PWG process about standards
numbers and what to do about allocating a PWG number for the Proposed PWG
XHTML/Print standard as requested by Don for the W3C.

In order to give Don a PWG number for the XHTML/Print Proposed PWG Standard,
the next series of numbers not yet used is 5102.n.

Currently, Proposed PWG standards have the following numbers:

5100.1, 5100.2, 5100.3, 5100.4 ... for IPP

5101.1 for the Media Standardized Names 

So how about 5102.1 for XHTML/Print.  If there are several documents, 5102.1
and 5102.2


ISSUE:  How to number future standards?  We can decide later how to allocate
numbers for:

PWG Semantic Model
Print Services Interface
IPPFAX
PDF/is
etc.

Is the 5102 series for document formats, so that PDF/is would go in that
series?

Should IPPFAX go in its own series, or should it be in the IPP 5100.n
series?

Should PWG Semantic Model be in its own series?

Should PSI be in its own series?

Or is there some common theme that would help put some of these in the same
series.


ISSUE:  Separate isssue is what happens when the Proposed/Candidate Standard
reaches Standard?

Does it get a new number or use the same number?  If a new number could it
be some algorithm from its original number, such as adding 50.  So 5150.2
would be the Standard version of Proposed standard 5100.2.

Tom
