I have a suggestion for modifying the "Maturity Level" (section 4.5.1) of
the current process document.

As I have been starting to update the older approved PWG documents I
noticed that the Maturity Level
is currently not supposed to be included on a Candidate Standard or
Standard.....although on some
of the recently approved documents it is.....

I'm looking for a way to indicate that PWG 5100.4-2001 is obsolete (other
than a background watermark...).
when I update the links and front matter.

Suggestion:

Change the "Maturity Level" to "Status"...and add "Approved" and "Obsolete"
or "Obsoleted by...." as kewords to be used
on Candidate Standards and Standards.

So the "Status" of a Working Draft or other PWG documents  would be
Initial, Interim, Prototype, and Stable.
The "Status" of a Candidate Standard/Standard/other approvable documents
would be Approved, or Obsolete....

Here's a copy of this applied to the update of PWG5100.1........as well as
the updated cover matter."
