May I suggest the abbreviated acronym FIPA instead of FIPA-TRAFTO? I would
also suggest several levels in FIPA. As your definition of FIPA-TRAFTO is
ideal but rarely observed it might be called "FIPA-IDEAL." And for the more
common OAI documents presently observed in archives -- that is, fulltext,
tagged as refereed (including journal-name) but with a *later* deposit
date -- FIPA-TRIAL (seen as a trial to reach the ideal of FIPA-IDEAL).
