FW: Proposed change of transformation input

Message-ID: <EBBD956B8A9002479B0C9CE9FE14A6C202CCA16E@tayexc19.americas.cpqcorp.net>
To: "GRDDL Working Group" <public-grddl-wg@w3.org>
Cc: <ogbujic@ccf.org>, "Clark, John" <CLARKJ2@ccf.org>

To satisfactorily address all of issue-dbooth-3 except the absence of a
definition of "complete GRDDL results", John Clark, Chimezie Ogbuji and
David Booth propose the following normative change.  Of course
corresponding changes to the non-normative text would also be needed,
and David is willing to do or help with those as the WG desires.


In http://www.w3.org/2004/01/rdxh/spec#rule_result
[[
If an information resource([WEBARCH], section 2.2) IR is represented by
an XML document with an XPath root node R, and R has a GRDDL
transformation with a transformation property TP, and TP applied to R
gives an RDF Graph[RDFC04] G, then G is a GRDDL result of IR.
]]
change: "XML document"      to "XML document D"
and:    "TP applied to R"   to "TP applied to D"


Observations:

 - This change would permit the GRDDL transformation to control *all*
XML document processing, thus permitting the transformation author to be
unambiguous (if desired) about the RDF graph that is intended.

 - It is simple change for GRDDL implementations.

 - It would not require any test case changes.

 - It does not require re-opening faithful-infoset.

 - It would still enable transformation authors to use XProc if desired
when XProc is finished.
