[KI-LC] Additional proposed revision to the OP

Hi all -

A question came up recently regarding the procedures for handling a
Draft Report from the WG.  The current OP is not very clear on the
subject (though it is reasonably clear on the handling of Draft
Recommendations).  While there is some additional guidance on the wiki
(http://kantarainitiative.org/confluence/display/LC/LC+Approval+of+Group+Reports)
, voted on in 2011 by the LC, that text conflicts with the OP in new and
confusing ways.  In particular, it talks about sending a Report out for
an All-Member Ballot, which doesn't happen with Reports.

So, I am proposing to change the text in the OP.

Current text:

*3.9      **Development of WG Reports*
In addition to development of the Draft Recommendation(s) authorized in
the Work Group Charter the WG may find it appropriate to develop
additional Reports. These Reports shall meet any requirements
established by the LC. 

Submission of a report to the LC requires a Simple Majority approval of
the WG.



Proposed text:

*3.9      **Development of WG Reports*
In addition to development of the Draft Recommendation(s) authorized in
the Work Group Charter the WG may find it appropriate to develop
additional Reports. These Reports shall meet any requirements
established by the LC, specifically:

* *

  * The Draft Report must be duly approved by a simple majority of the
    voting participants of the WG.
  * The Draft Report must meet basic document quality requirements for
    spelling, formatting, etc., and uses an approved Kantara Report
    template
    <http://kantarainitiative.org/confluence/display/GI/Publishing+Templates>
    where possible.
  * The LC will work with the group to address any document quality or
    formatting issues and will vote to accept the Draft Report as a
    final Kantara Initiative Report. (see Section 2.6 Voting).



Thoughts?
