In my grove-illiterate opinion, yes!  The PropertySet is a sword of Damocles
hanging over these discussions.  It's clear that we can't have all 70+ 
properties.  IF (and I hope it's not a big IF) we can agree on a subset
of the property set then we don't have this problem dissipating the discussion
every time we get close :-)

James Clark came up with a grove subset about 3 months back (have a look in
March xml-dev) in response to one of my typical blunderings for information.  
It looked simple (I can't tell if it was comprehensive) and imagine it
is fairly close to what we require. Unfortunately no-one seemed to take it
up.  So do JamesC and JamesT converge on a common solution?  If they do, why 
not freeze this as an alpha version of the propertySubSet...??
