On 1999 Sep 25, the XML Core working group submitted an official Request
to make the Fragment Interchange specification a Proposed Recommendation.
This Request goes to the W3C Team and Director. Ordinarily, a response
to such a Request is forthcoming within days or a couple weeks. However,
in the case of the Fragment Interchange spec, the Team appears to have
decided that the interest level is too low to warrant any resources be
put into processing this request, so it has remained an outstanding
request for almost a year.
Both W3C members and the user community at large are welcome to express
their opinion on the importance (or lack thereof) of this spec. To date,
there has been several opportunities to do so, but no outpouring of
interest by either the developer or use community, so it appears that
the W3C Team's reading of the interest level is not inaccurate.
