Not much to say here, good job.

If I remember well, the outcome of the first SIG meeting was that the
present Critical Apparatus tagset is not really suited to ms
transcription (which makes sense to me): are we going back to it?

I am very interested in text-image linking, hope to hear more about
this. I know that the <figure> element is under review, let's keep an
eye over it. BTW, what happened to the "digital facsimile" project by
Lou Burnard? I think a "light" approach would be needed anyway (Eclipse
is quite resource hungry).

It also needs to be expanded so that it can handle all ms transcription
cases, for instance:
* there should be a simple way to clearly distinguish graphical words
from lexical words;
* the <w> element should include elements like <abbr> and <expan>, etc.;
* complex substitutions, variations etc.;
* still hoping for an <emend> element (ok, that would be more useful for
critical editions than transcriptions :)
