Subject: Brand new version of the RIF+XML data document (would you review it, please?)

Michael, Gary

I have essentially completed the rework of the RIF+XML data spec [1]: 
there are still examples to be added, and a few places that need be 
developed more in depth, but the content is essentially there.

Apart from completing the rework of the semantics that was already started 
in the June WD, the main change is that the discussion about the syntax 
(e.g. [2]) led me to come back to XPath expressions (as xs:string) in 
frame slots for navigating through XML data, and XSD component designators 
(as xs:string) in membership and subclass formulas for designating named 
elements and complex types as classes.

Would you care to review the document in its current state, please? One 
question is whether it is essentially sound or not: if it is, I can put 
the extra work needed for a publication befor ethe end of the month (and 
the WG); if it has major flaws, on the other hand, we will need to discuss 
what to do with it (where one of the option is to request an extension to 
correct those flaws).

I know that the notice is extremely short, but, if you accept to review 
the document, it would be very useful if you could give a first feedback 
(wrt soundness/major flaws) for the telecon tomorrow.
