Proposed First Draft
I’ve now completed a first draft of a proposed standard, as a Microsoft Excel file (118kB, so quite small). You can download it here. Comments/criticisms most welcome. Let’s make this happen!
Why Microsoft Excel?
I’ve chosen to put it in an Excel file (as opposed to CSV or other non proprietary formats) for the moment because Excel offers the following advantages:

- field headings can have explanatory comments
- I’ve using colour coding to visually group similar fields.
