XInclude has been approved to go to PR, but we have spec
cleanup to do.

As an aside, we should plan to make more detailed/careful
implementation reports in the future where it is clearer
what "features" we are testing and whether the results
show interoperable support.

We have spec cleanup to do--see
where Paul outlined what needs to be done.

The new IRI text suggested by Martin removes (relative to 
the text in our draft PR) characters such as space, <, >, `,
and others from IRIs.  Outside the defn of IRIs, do we want
to say one should escape the unwise characters if put into
the href attribute?

Jonathan suggests we can do one of three things:

1.  get rid of mention of IRIs entirely
2.  explain how to transform the href attr value into URI and IRI
3.  consider not escaping delimiters, etc.

Martin's proposal says href attributes are IRIs.  Richard says 
we could say that the href attribute can include "unwise" and
other characters, and we explain how to transform the value
of the href attribute into an IRI.  Glenn prefers to say that
the data type of an href is IRI and not fool with it.  Jonathan
points out we shouldn't make big changes to the spec, and the
spec currently says one should do an escaping process on the
value of the href attribute.

Jonathan suggests we use Martin's words for the IRI part of
the spec, but in the description of the href attribute, we
will change "the href value is an IRI ref" to "the href value
is a string to which some escaping is done" (not literally,
but something to that effect at the editor's discretion).

We talked about adding a note about XML 1.0 versus XML 1.1
versus the fact that XInclude is only working with infosets
(point 6 in Paul's email).  We ran out of time.

We did not get to discussing point 7 in Paul's email.  We
will let Jonathan suggest something in email.

ACTION to Jonathan:  Edit the PR draft per
and the discussion in this telcon.

ACTION to Paul:  Submit the publication request for the
updated PR. 

> 7. xml:id.
> Norm has collected the xml:id issues, now (public) at:
> http://www.w3.org/XML/2004/xml-id/issues.xml
> and put a new version of the draft at
> http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/2004/xmlcore/xmlid/xml-id.html
> ID Strictness 
> -------------
> Commentor figures that non-validating parsers shouldn't have 
> to check for xml:id validity.
> Currently, conformance to xml:id does require non-validating 
> parsers to check for xml:id validity; of course, no parser is 
> required to conform to xml:id.
> Richard send email outlining our options at:
> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2004Aug/0024
> He outlines options of strict, moderate, lax id checking.
> Richard would like to know that ids, for example, don't 
> contain spaces.
> Then we started asking if id values should be NCName or Name.
> Tentative CONSENSUS that we would do "moderate" where id values 
> should be NCName (with some uncertainty).
> We left open what kind of error it would be if the above isn't 
> the case.
> Norm sent email with his latest proposal:
> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2004Sep/0003
> and there was some follow up email discussion.  We discussed this
> a bit last week, but we still need to discuss more.
