OCF needs to point at OPF/OPS not OEBPS 1.2

Project:EPUB Maintenance
Component:Open Container Format (OCF)
Category:task
Priority:normal
Assigned:GConboy
Status:completed @ 2.0.1

 OCF was done as the first of the three specification that now make up EPUB.  At that time it was documents as a container for OEBPS 1.2 (as that was the then current markup standard).  The OCF specification needs to be updated to refer to OPF/OPS 2.0 and become a full fledged member of the EPUB trio.

Description
Issue Id: 
6
Resolution: 

This change will be done during the (real soon now) 2.0.1 maintenance pass over the specs, it can not be done as a simple errata -- it requires mechanical, but substantive, changes throughout the specifications.  Also, it should entail a change from "OCF" standing for "OEBPS Container Format" to "Open Container Format" (to match OPS and OPF) [finally].  Notes covering these points moved into the "Tie the three specs to EPUB" issue, as that is the issue that should drive a logical unification (while keeping three documents) pass over all three specifications.

This will be done in the 2.0.1 spec-pass.
