I think to this point we have met the first part of this guideline at
least -- the discussion has focussed very closely on implementation
issues, and as implementors we have been discussing general approaches
broadly (i.e. namespaces, architectural forms, and subdocuments)
rather than dealing with details of a specific proposal.

In fact, architectural forms and subdocuments do not require any
proposal at all -- the already exist, and can be used with the current
XML spec.

All the best,
