Message-ID: <7DA77BF2392448449D094BCEF67569A50520921E@RED-MSG-30.redmond.corp.microsoft.com>
To: "Hugo Haas" <hugo@w3.org>, <public-ws-desc-comments@w3.org>

The Working Group agreed to resolve this issue [1] by:

- Removing text regarding schema validity from section 1.2 and add text
to describe schema is for the conformance of XML 1.0 serialisation and
the intent is it may be applied to other future serialisations such as
XML 1.1

- Making it clear that the mapping to XML is 1.0 specific.

We will assume you agree that we have addressed this issue appropriately
unless we hear from you before Oct 13th.

> Part 1 says, talking about the WSDL 2.0 XML Schema in Table 1-1:

>   it is possible to come up with a valid set of WSDL components that
>   cannot be serialized as an XML 1.0 document.

> It is therefore possible to have a document which does not conform to

>   An element information item whose namespace name is

>   conforms to this specification if it conforms to the XML Schema for
>   that element as defined by this specification family and
>   additionally adheres to all the constraints contained in this
>   specification.

> We need to make it clearer that XML Schema conformance only works for
