Publication Details

In the year since JATS-Con 2010 the JATS has made one major step (becoming a draft NISO Standard) and many small steps (changes to the Tag Suite itself). This is a good time to think about the future of the JATS. Will it, and should it, be basically stationary from now on? Will it be gracefully and gradually extended? What sorts of changes are probable? Are there revolutionary changes we should be thinking about?
