------- Additional Comments From cmsmcq@w3.org  2005-07-20 17:45 -------
Thanks for the comment.  The XML Query and XSL Working Groups
discussed this issue during this morning's meeting.

We agree that the correct interpretation here is that comments
and other token separators are indeed allowed within the
so-called 'long tokens' of the grammar.  (Some members of the
WGs suggest that there is really no uncertainty as to the 
answer, if only because all the evidence on one side comes from
a normative document, and all the evidence on the other 
side is from a document marked non-normative.  But we agree
that the non-normative document can usefully be made clearer
on this question.)

Since the interpretation agreed upon requires no changes to the
language documents, we are closing this issue without any
instructions to the editors to change the normative documents.
(Also with the expectation that the next revision of the
document about tokenization will be clearer on this topic.)

Please let us know if you agree with this resolution of your 
issue, by adding a comment to the issue record and changing 
the Status of the issue to Closed. Or, if you do not agree 
with this resolution, please add a comment explaining why. 
If you wish to appeal the WG's decision to the Director, 
then also change the Status of the record to Reopened. If 
you wish to record your dissent, but do not wish to appeal 
the decision to the Director, then change the Status of the 
record to Closed. If we do not hear from you in the next 
two weeks, we will assume you agree with the WG decision.
