I'd like to seek consensus on separating the semantics of link
relation for separate disclosure and a list thereof, correspondingly
defining two link relations - 'disclosure' and 'disclosure-list'. You
may see my edits made to Section 2 of the doc. below, which I'm
2. 'disclosure' Link Relation Type
Whenever the 'disclosure' relation is defined, the target IRI
[RFC5988] MUST refer to a particular patent disclosure made with
respect to the material being referenced by context IRI.
3. 'disclosure-list' Link Relation Type
Whenever the 'disclosure' relation is defined, the target IRI MUST
designate a list of patent disclosures made with respect to the
material being referenced by context IRI.
As the doc. is in Last Call now, in order not to initiate a new one,
please comment on these changes before January 6, so that I could know
which version I should submit for IESG evaluation.
