I've updated the attached file a little to make clearer what Part each of the changes were in.

You may have thought Shawn wasn't keeping an eye on WG4 any more, but I can confirm he is...

Subject: DR 09-0172 — WML: Filename-to-IRI mapping

This is one we were almost done with - it covers the napping of filenames to IRIs. We were agreed on the solution to the core DR, but we noticed in Tokyo that there was no normative definition anywhere for "DOS filenames". I was tasked with investigating.

I have investigated, and there appears not to be a definition anywhere in Part 4 (or Part 1). I propose we fix this by adding the term to "Terms and Definitions" in Part 4 (it is used twice in the part). I'm defining it using an EBNF.

Because of the cross-part nature of the changes necessary, the scope of this DR should be modified to incorporate Part 4.
