yes, but Stephen had a different worry. The conceptual model was approved a
year ago and the document will not be changed unless there will be a new
version. The renderings which will be captured in different OGF documents
are not yet formally approved. There are many ways to map the conceptual
model into a concrete schema. If some person comments on a change to the
LDAP schema, while this is deployed in production, then we will have to
decide by consensus if we change the schema which will go into the spec or
keep the current version while postponing its revision.
The decision will depend of course on the relevance of the suggested

yes. This is generally true; anyway in our case we talk about concrete
schemas which can reasonably be part of a standard as they define the way to
structure data to be exchanged and interpreted.
