Sandy,

My thought originally was that we don't specify this kind of statement with other SML constructs such as reference constraints. However, to your point, then we should probably make this 'ignoring' explicit.

However, I am not opposed to making the 'must not' statement. If we do that, should we extend it to other constructs? Would that eliminate the need for row 1 of table 4.2? :-)

Ginny,

> 2. Do NOT add this statement to 4.1.2

Any particular reason? Do we then need to explain what the following means?

<dummy sml:ref="false" sml:nilref="true"/>

[Bug 5408] Section 8.1.3 sml:nilref is non-normative








http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=5408

          Summary: Section 8.1.3 sml:nilref is non-normative
          Product: SML
          Version: FPWD
         Platform: PC
       OS/Version: Windows XP
           Status: NEW
         Keywords: needsAgreement
         Severity: normal
         Priority: P2
        Component: Core
       AssignedTo: cmsmcq@w3.org
       ReportedBy: virginia.smith@hp.com
        QAContact: public-sml@w3.org


Section 8.1.3 sml:nilref is non-normative but contains the statement "This
attribute MUST NOT be used on an element unless it also has sml:ref="true"
specified."  Section 4.1.2, which is normative, does not make any such
statement.

Proposal:

1. Remove sentence from 8.1.3
2. Do NOT add this statement to 4.1.2
