>* decide on using a DTD, schema, or both.

If I have a vote, I would opt for Schema. They are valid XML documents, unlike DTDs. They also 
seem to provide more flexibility -- maybe it is just ease -- in defining the document structure.

> * decide on the basic methodology for data transfer and archiving, e.g. XML.

Does archiving include the use of the file in place of a raw data file (ie. Survex .svx or COMPASS 
.DAT file)?

Since not everything will be covered, should means of using XPointers and XLinks be covered 
as well?

For work in progress, there is at least until a new 
domain is opened.
