[Moims-dai] Last para of response to Rosenthal

Changes to the last paragraph of the draft response  were suggested in the
call and Mike Kearney emailed a suggestion to append some text to be a
little more open.


I therefore propose the following change, replacing the last para with

Taking distributed archives as an example, which are mentioned in the
original post as being beyond OAIS. We noted above that mapping PDS to OAIS
indicates that this is not true and the core concepts of OAIS do apply. It
may be sensible to create new standards for the implementation of
distributed archives, for example to define new ways to implement
federations or special storage systems. This would not in itself imply
changes to OAIS.


As noted at the start, OAIS is scheduled for review/revision in 2017. It
will be important to collect ideas/comments/corrections but it is essential
to distinguish between changes in OAIS itself versus suggestions for new,
separate, standards.  Our comments indicate that the points made in the
original post fall in the latter category. However, if there are other new
considerations, or if you feel we didn't understand your post, we would be
happy to discuss this.  


Please let me know what you think.
