more grief on the submission

From: Peter F. Patel-Schneider (
Date: 11/14/01

It seems that there were more problems with the submission.  The axiom
document apparently didn't follow the guidelines.  This may be a problem
because the axiom document was modified after the previous submission.
(May be, but I don't think so.  I think that the previous version also had
most of the rejected characteristics.)

So several things:

1/ I've modified the document to try to satisfy these constraints.

2/ I will NOT accept any changes to the documents.  The only changes that
   will be made from now on are minimal changes required to pass the W3C

3/ I will submitted the document yet again this morning, as soon as I
   got it past the automated checkers.  This version apparently passed one
   set of checkes.

On an organizational note, this has been an exceedingly frustrating
experience.  I ask that our leader (which one, I'm not sure) make an
official communication to W3C to the effect that the process for submitting
notes is broken and needs to be fixed.

Here are some of the broken pieces:

1/ requirements documents out of date and inconsistent (known by W3C)

2/ legal requirements unspecified (and probably changing)

3/ checking software broken and hard to use (some changes have already been
   made in response to errors that I found, but others remain)


PS:  The new state of the submission will be available under

     shortly after 11am EST today.
