Dear All,
        recently the SEA AD has submitted a resolution for including in 
the normative track  the formerly Green Book for Security Glossary; i.e. 
eventually te book will be published as Magenta Book.

Rationale for this is the fact that definitions, in any Blue or Magenta 
document should be regarded as foundational specifications worth being in 
a Magenta (and not Green) Book.
Of course this reminds that glossaries have to be treated as normative 
material as Glossaries, and in particular, Definitions in our Blue and 
Magenta Books, have always been normative content. 
However, some ( many?) blue books have terms defined as informative annex 
after having carefully created definitions used consistently in documents.

Your WG may want to consider checking your documents having definitions in 
informative annexes with respect to the necessity for keeping or changing 
the approach.

Of course there is no hurry, but this could be an item for Berlin 

Best regards

Gian Paolo
