Subject: RE: Transition Request: PR Request for XInclude

This is to take care of an action item I got from the I18N WG (Core TF).
The action item asks me to send this to the XML Core WG, but I think
it's better to send it here directly; please forward to the XML Core WG
as appropriate. [most of this is just confirming previous discussions]

The I18N WG (Core TF) had a look at the original mail in this thread:
    http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-i18n-ig/2004Sep/0002.html
and the issues mentioned there. With respect to issue xi-2:
    - We think that syntactic checking of URIs/IRIs isn't an i18n issue,
      and isn't, and shouldn't be, the job of the XInclude processor.
      This is similar to there being nothing, to our knowledge, about
      syntactic checking of system ids in XML.

    - It's very good to see IRIs in the spec
      http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/CR-xinclude-20040413/#IRIs. We hope
      that the IRI spec well soon be approved and issues as an RFC.

   - The following has to be fixed:
      the Unicode plane 1-14 characters #x10000-#x1FFFD ...
#xE000-#xEFFD
      #xE000-#xEFFD -> #xE0000-#xEFFFD
      also, spaces and similar characters should be disallowed.

With respect to issue xi-12:
    - We support this (correct!) treatment of xml:lang;
      it's unacceptable to simply drop this information

Regards,    Martin.
