Comment and Open Issue review

Dave G discussed the results of internal review. Regarding visibility, the committee expressed preferences for retaining no visibility for protected envelopes other than for elaboration, or VPI/VHPI specified access. Regarding the cost of implementing viewports, Steven suggested that an optional conformance profile would be preferable so that those who chose to implement would do so in the same way. That would allow the market to determine whether there was adequate ROI. John reminded the committee that the intent of the visibility position of P1735 was to allow tool vendors to conform by limiting the supported profiles to those that mirror their existing functionality, leaving the more costly features for negotiation with their customers.

Feedback actions:

  • Dave G: get more specific description of concerns given the working group feedback regarding the intended light touch
