Hi,

as an LC comment for WS-Addressing, I'd like to note that often in the
specifications (in both LC drafts, that is) an element description says
something like "this element (of type xs:anyURI) ..." which is
technically inconsistent with the attribute extensibility allowed
everywhere.

The normative XML Schema contains the type AttributedURIType (and
others) to make up for this, but the text should clarify that it's not
meant literally, that the element is of the stated type, rather that its
text content is of that type.

Similarly, the elements that contain other elements, like
ReferenceParameters and Metadata, don't say in the text whether they can
contain only element children or if text is also allowed and how it can
be handled.

Best regards,

                   Jacek Kopecky
