Thank you for the comment.  The Working Group this issue as a CR125 [1].

The latest editors draft [2] and schema [3] properly indicates that pattern
is optional, defaulting to the "in-out" MEP.

Unless you let us know otherwise within 2 weeks, we will assume you agree
with the resolution of this issue.
