Documentation Concern about migration Concern about updating existing tools Reconsider extent of changes Changing of names Alignment with EAC-CPF Increase in number of elements Feature requests Bugs
No camel case All element and attribute names will continue to be all lower case No name changes Existing element names will not be changed, but new element names will have longer, more natural language forms No Had bundled and in alpha.
Restored recursion in sibling elements No split access elements Alpha included and Collapsed in the Beta to just Moved back into the Restored some elements deprecated in alpha +
Preliminary Provisional Contingent Possible Potential
Likely Highly Likely But nothing is final.
A non-Newtonian fluid that will exhibit solid behaviors if enough stress is applied CC BY-NC-SA, Jean-Christophe, Flickr
Still fluid, but starting to solidify (Stress has been applied)
Completely re-written schema Relax NG W3C No DTD yet Draft Tag Library Element definitions Attribute definitions
Remove from Remove from [and promote it to a sibling] Remove from Limit to the Limit and to block contexts in appropriate elements
8 distinct uses for in EAD 2002: or [in sibling Within siblings [as a block element] Recursively within Within block elements like [as mixed content]
Eliminate generic Create context-appropriate note elements Improve documentation for
Enable Armstrong, Louis,
Minor tweaks to Remove,, and from within Limit to a block element, add for inline use.
Consolidate,,, and to just and Remove linking attributes from assorted elements, e.g., Deprecate extended links Remove XLINK namespace, but implement linking attributes isomorphic with XLINK
Add language code and script code attributes to all non-empty elements Corresondence 対応 Make sure appropriate elements can repeat to support multi-language description
Reduce mixed content by more carefully considering what elements are appropriate within a given element Balance that impulse against desire for reasonably simple schema design
External validation tools (Schematron) Validate ISO code lists, etc. Establishing subset profiles Encoding manipulation tools Stylesheet to change between numbered and unnumbered components Updated EAD Cookbook XSLT style sheets for transforming EAD into HTML
