I (Main.RichMorin) have been playing with these ideas for some time
and have prototyped parts of the system for my own amusement.
My current hackery is involved
in the creation of exploratory Input Filters
At the same time
(with help from assorted people),
I have gotten my ideas into a state
where I am willing to let "the public" look at them.
This TWiki web serves to present Meta,
but it is also a way to get feedback.
Feel free, therefore,
to submit Comments And Suggestions
As can be seen from the hand-waving in this Wiki,
many definitional issues are still up for grabs.
Thus, one of the biggest needs of the moment
is for experts on XML and/or the characteristics
of specific information resources.
If you would like to assist in this process,
visit Data Sets
and look over the proposed data sets.
Once we have a fairly complete collection of definitions,
we can start
to write File Characterization And Conversion
