As discussed in our last telecon, here are your assignments. I have grouped each of your assignments and tried to make them consistent. Write to me with your heartburn.

Note the numbers in this document pertain the new version I have just posted (revised on the airplane). Actually things are pretty close. I still need to finish incorping Deb and Mike's text. But it is coming along.


-3.3 XML Schema and RFC2277 (locale-independent datatypes).
-I-013: needs rework
-I-025: needs rework and a link to the requirements
-4.3: Write text to deal with editorial note about chaining.

-4.4.1: Pandora's box. Open it and deal with the consequences. (Suggestion: write a very small paragraph noting that this sometimes happens and may be unavoidable, but is still bad. Otherwise let's not deal with it: we are not writing an i18n primer).
-4.5.1: character encoding of attachments scenario.
-4.5.3: unsupported charset in request scenario. Expand text. Provide example.
-5.1 Passing or matching international preferences. Ignore note. Write text.
-5.2 Needs intro paragraph

-5.2.1 Needs Takao's picture.
-9.1 Review to see if there is any salvage. Otherwise let's remove it.
-9.2 Ditto.
-5.2.5 (was 9.3.1) Revise and fix up.
-9.3, 9.4: Ditto of 9.2
-6.2.1 JIS vs. Unicode sort.

-5.4 SOAP header structures.
-5.5 Communicating locale preferences or input requirements in WSDL. Needs intro.
-5.6 SOAP Faults and the Reason Text Element. This may need to go to oblivion, since we seem to cover it elsewhere??
-5.8 Introspection when writing WSDL

-5.3 Providing support for locale patterns. (Might be too broad??)
-Section 6: might be redund.
-6.2 Ordering Grouping and Collation
-6.2.2 curses (but not voodoo)

-6.3 MM is doing this section
-6.5 MM: suggest what to merge with the previous section on discovery (this is searching and seems redundant)
-6.4 Human Readable text in WS (intro paragraph)
-6.4.5 enumerated values and object names ("the name is the thing" problem... write to me if you can't decipher). Includes and

-6.4.4 structuring documents
-6.6.1 Times and Timezones
-6.7 Regimes (intro paragraph) and 6.7.1.
-6.9 Transports (intro paragraph)

Internationalization is an architecture. 
It is not a feature.
