Re: [xml-dev] The year is 2027, and we need to examine archived XML documents from 2007 ...

Well, this seems to be a good time to point to the Danish FESD
Archiving standard, written in glorious Danish!

from the OIO description:


somewhat poor translation:

 Standardization of the datamodel for Archive structure is a part of
the complete standardization of FESD datamodel, which is being
developed with a focus on securing interoperability between government
agencies while at the same time creating a groundwork for developing
and standardization of modules.

The purpose in standardizing the datamodel for Archive structure is
primarily to secure description of an informational archive with focus
on acceptance and delivery at governmental archives, including the
giving of storage and disclosure requirements.

Furthermore the purpose is to describe and thereby identify logical
document similarities, which will be archived and used in a
FESD-solution, but which is not a part of the informational archive
(not case related documents)

finally the standard should describe the relation to the complete data
model in relation to subject systematic and connection to case and
document entities.

There is no discussion of a delivery module which would handle the
functional requirements with delivery to governmental archives, but
only the standardization of the data model for archive structure. For
standardization of the delivery module please refer to
FESD-Standardization group methode hearing of delivery module in
February 2005

quoted danish:

FESD Arkivstruktur

Standardisering af datamodel for Arkivstruktur er en del af den
samlede standardisering af FESD datamodellen, som udvikles med henblik
på at sikre interoperabiliteten mellem myndigheder samt skabe grundlag
for udvikling og standardisering af moduler.

Formålet med at standardisere datamodel for Arkivstruktur er primært
at sikre beskrivelse af det forvaltningsmæssige arkiv med henblik på
godkendelse og aflevering hos Statens Arkiver, herunder angivelse af
bevarings- og anmeldelsesoplysninger.

Endvidere er formålet at kunne beskrive og dermed identificere logiske
dokumentsamlinger, som arkiveres og benyttes i en FESD-løsning, men
som ikke er en del af det forvaltningsmæssige arkiv (ikke sagsbundne

Endelig skal standarden beskrive relationen til den samlede datamodel
i forhold til emnesystematik og tilknytning til sags- og

Der er ikke tale om et afleveringsmodul, der håndterer de funktionelle
krav ved aflevering til offentligt arkiv, men alene standardisering af
datamodel for Arkivstruktur. For standardisering af Afleveringsmodul
henvises til FESD-standardiseringsgruppens metodehøring af
afleveringsmodul i februar 2005.

Not exactly sure if I find this the right way of doing it.
