#589 add <respons> and <space> to att.responsibility


Two elements (<respons> and <space>) have the attribute @resp defined locally rather than being members of att.responsibility where the attribute is defined more consistently.

As discussed in passing in FR 443, this seems to be a corrigible error. I propose that we (a) add these two elements to the class; (b) remove the locally defined attribute; (c) only if anyone objects strenuously consider removing @cert from one or both of these elements, which they would not have inherited before being associated with this class.

    This sounds like a straightforward corrigible error to me.

    Assigned to EM, get rid of locally assigned @resp. (Council face-to-face 2013-11)

    @resp on <respons> is fairly generic, and therefore putting the element in att. responsibility is fine and using the default desc is fine.

    "(responsible party) identifies the individual or agency responsible for the indicated aspect of the electronic text."

    "(responsible party) indicates the agency responsible for the intervention or interpretation, for example an editor or transcriber."

    I added a brief sentence explaining that it inherits @resp from att.responsibilty in the chapter text, just as we explain that it inherits @target and @match.

    @resp on <space> is a little different. It turns out that the in the <attDef> is quite different from that of att. responsibility

    "(responsible party) indicates the individual responsible for identifying and measuring the space."

    I added an change attDef/desc and replaced the original definition, so it's clearer what @resp should be in this situation.
