Hello Steven,

What follows is a purely personal opinion.

I'm glad to hear that you and your WG are working on
an XML Schema for Ruby.

I think it makes sense to a link as an erratum to the Ruby spec,
although it is strictly speaking not an erratum. This
would help readers to find the XML Schema

I don't think it makes sense to reissue the Ruby spec
just to add a link; the administrative overhead is just too big.

I think it would be good if the I18N WG would review the
XML Schema you produce. But my guess is that your group
will do a good job, because you are more familliar with
the DTD in the first place, whereas to us, all the DTD
trickery used there looks like black magic.

Regards,    Martin.
