Perhaps the potential attendees could indicate whether they could attend 
following XML Europe as easily as prior to XML Europe? Assuming of 
course they have not already made plane reservations, which would have 
to be changed either way.

BTW, is there some reason, other that tradition, to prefer meeting prior 
to the XML conference?

Appreciate your consideration of my schedule in terms of the RM 
discussion but would note that the US national body is not interested 
solely in the RM part of the topic maps specification.

Hope you are having a great day!
