I just had a telecon with the Standards Interest Group editors about our RFC.
In a nutshell, the Standards Interest Group editors feel that the Collection Casting part is more in the nature of a Best Practice, and therefore more of a Technical Note. The OpenSearch part (though also a little loosy-goosy relative to more traditional standards like WCS), could go standards track on its own. Though it could also be thought of as a Best Practice use of OpenSearch.
So as I see it, we basically have two choices:
(1) Submit the whole RFC to the Technical Note track
(2) Scope the RFC down to OpenSearch for the Standards Track, and submit a Technical Note on repurposing part of the OpenSearch-based standard for data casting. Note that in this latter case, we, by which I mean mostly Ruth :-), could reincorporate the granule-level casting, as well as discuss how to use OpenSearch and Casting together.
