Dear i18n-core,

The XML Schema Patterns for Databinding WG has an issue 
surrounding how to give advice to implementers of binding 
tools how to represent XML Schema 1.0 names such as elements, 
types and enumerated type values in the typically more 
constrained world of databases and programming languages.

One way forward is to simply warn product developers to
expect to have to provide a manual step to handle the
mapping of characters invalid in their processing environment
and to avoid any possible symbol clashes.

However, several members of the WG felt sure that there may
already be some approaches for mapping characters, such as
from Kanji to Roman which could also be referenced.

We therefore wondered if there was any advice or pointers to 
existing advice the i18n WG could offer us in this area?

Regards,
Paul
