Hi Thierry,

I basically agree with you:  it is out of scope for this review.  It would 
be a large amount of work to do this, and would heavily impact the 
schedule, which has already slipped too much.  I think, in the worst case, 
it could end up essentially requiring a rewrite of Ch.4.

I also tend to think there may be some merit to the idea, had it been 
brought up earlier.  (E.g., during "Requirements" phase, or a year ago at 
latest (CS review / 1st WD review).

We should (and will) have a full discussion in the full WG, of course.  I 
particularly want to understand his comment about Namespace.

It might be interesting to see if someone would like to write a Relax NG 
schema as a side project -- to be a technical article, but not a normative 
part of 2.1 at this time.  If it works out well and people like it, then 
perhaps it could be added to the REC/OS in a quick future Amendment, rather 
than delaying 2.1 further.

Thoughts, others?


p.s.  Dave & I looked at the CSS question and wrote a paper, long ago:
