Move to prescriptive recommendations

Most of the recommendations put forward in the current handbook are based on de facto standards and simply describe the current working practices in spoken language technology R&D. In any future activity, it would be possible to move towards a more prescriptive framework, in which serious consideration is given to recommending particular methods and techniques over and above some others. Clearly this would require a continued commitment to the process of community consultation and feedback.
