    1. W3C is continuing the constraints work in a group called: Composite
    Capabilities-Preferences Profile Working Group. See the bound handout from
    the Chicago meeting which is also a single zip file:


    2. Norbert Schade has forwarded an alternative constraints approach as well
    from the UPDF work.
