Also, frankly I think it would be OK if you guys decided that the 
modularized schema stuff was just too complicated to work with right now.

Instead, if you want to work from the XForms 1.0 schema, that might be 
quite a bit better (e.g. it has the version list definition needed for the 
model already).

Given that the modularized version has *not* been carried through to 
completion, I think it is better to have a 1.1 schema quickly and 
modularize later than to continue to have a thing called XForms 1.1 schema 
but which is not at all reflective of XForms 1.1, no matter how much more 
modularized its 1.0 description is.  Again, we can modularize later if 
anyone decides to take the time to do that.

In case you guys decide to go this route, here is the file for you to work 
with:



If it were me, this is the one I'd go with, for the reasons above.

ACTION NEEDED (Charlie, Nick, Leigh): XForms 1.1 schema update







We had hoped to get some time on this during the face to face meeting, but 
the last call issues proved too time consuming (though I would 
characterize our progress as outstanding). 

This still leaves us in a precarious position of needing to have the spec 
ready for CR transition before the publication moratorium that will 
precede the tech plenary.  I need you, Charlie, Nick and Leigh, to help 
out by updating the XForms 1.1 schema. 

The idea is that we need 

1) big update for submission 
2) big update for actions (e.g. additions to insert, delete, toggle, 
setfocus, and remove actions we don't have like close, duplicate, 
destroy). 
3) small update for UI (e.g. output element) 
4) small update on model (e.g. version) and instance (e.g. src and 
resource) 
5) Make sure schema reflects definition of "core form controls" 
6) Many new datatypes in Section 5 (empties and email and card-number) 

Starting tomorrow, I need you guys to please please please begin 
exchanging some email on the list above to divide up the tasks and get 
this done.  We need to have an idea of how long it will take given the 
"one day a week" commitment you and your organization made.  I would 
recommend one person to take submission, one to take actions, and a third 
to do the rest. 

The files begin with 
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Forms/2007/XForms-11-Schema.xsd, but there are 
several other files. 

To make this as easy as possible, here are the files, as far as I can see.
