resolution in conf call on 3/27:

The SML working group believes that there is good reason for allowing
assertions on both elements and types.  Our experience is that some  
vocabulary
designers work in a type-centered way, some in an element-centered  
way, and
many in ways spread out along the scale.  Restriction of  
functionality to
types, and not allowing it on elements, favors one style of  
vocabulary design
over the others; we are not certain, however, that type-centered  
design is the
only style that needs to be supported.

I'm changing its status accordingly. The change in status should  
cause email to
be sent to the originator of this issue, to whom the following  
request is
addressed.

Please review the current LC text and let us know if you agree with this
resolution of your issue, by adding a comment to the issue record.  
Or, if you
do not agree with this resolution, please add a comment explaining  
why. If we
do not hear from you in the next two weeks, we will assume you agree  
with the
WG decision.
