Subject RE: XRI requirements

Thanks, Eric & Duncan.

Ted Leung volunteered to work on this with me, and he's a committer.
But he's going on vacation, so giving me rights probably makes sense, at
least for the time being.

I'm collating together a (hopefully) better list, with quotes and hrefs back
to the mail archive.

Here's an excerpt, for review of structure.  We should have something real
checked in tomorrow.

Proposed requirements are organized into categories.  Some requirements may
occur in more than one category in the future.

Each requirement has a number. The numbers are not in any useful order, but
will remain stable for reference.  Underneath the number is a "hardness" and

  Possible "hardness" values are:
  hard - Xerces 2 must and shall meet this requirement
  soft - Xerces 2 should meet this requirement, but it may be dropped
because of conflicting requirements or time pressures

  Possible "status" values are:
  approved - there appears to be a clear consensus
  tooQuiet - there may be a consensus, but there hasn't been enough input to
be sure
  hardnessConflict - there is conflict over whether this is a hard or soft
  vetoConflict - there is a conflict over whether this proposed requirement
is a requirement at all
  rejected - the proposed requirement appears to be dead
  unevaluated - editor hasn't finished reviewing input


An example entry:

     The parser shall be faster than the speed of light.

        "Parser output must occur before parser input..."  [spinnaker]

In fact if the problem is that he doesn't have commit access, let's take
care of that -- if he's willing to keep the requirements and further design
docs together (granted, everyone should work on them, but.. It's nice to
have a point person as long as they are willing) -- then I'd propose he be a
