           Summary: why must SML references be derived from sml:refType?
           Product: SML
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: cmsmcq@w3.org
        ReportedBy: johnarwe@us.ibm.com

SML in some places says that SML references must be derived from sml:refType,
implying a requirement for PSVI.  In other places, it states that SML
references are recognized by the presence of sml:ref="true"/"1", which has no
PSVI requirement.  Further, SML-IF states an intention to change to allow
recognition of SML references without PSVI, although it does not currently have
this in place.  Does SML really need to specify that all references must be
derived from sml:refType, or could the looser form be used (any type that
requires sml:ref="true"/"1" at the type level MUST be an SML reference
according to the loose definition, regardless of its derivation hierarchy).
