Richard has the following issues:


I'm still a little unclear about the relationship between XSL/Query
datatypes and schema datatypes.  The resolution says that "All
primitive atomic types, such as xs:integer and xs:string, have
xdt:anyAtomicType as their base type." which is not true in XML Schema.


They're adding a note to the XPath backwards compatibility appendix
(appendix to what?) noting the incompatibility when there is a DTD,
but this still seems like a big change: for example, identity
transformations will now strip element-content whitespace.  And I
still don't see why they are not describing it in terms of [element
content whitespace].

ACTION to Richard:  Accept the others, but question
there two in the bugzilla data base.

XQuery, XPath, and Data Model all use the same idea: an implementation
can use XML 1.0 rules or XML 1.1 rules for whitespace and names.
XQuery explicitly says that 1.1 implementations may wish to provide a
1.0 mode;  I'd like to see this strengthened to SHOULD, to agree with
the XML 1.1 Recommendation.

The Functions and Operators draft refers to XML 1.1 support as a feature,
but the datatypes are imported from XML Schema part 2, which does not
deal with XML 1.1 names or strings.

ACTION to John:  Add your two comments ASAP into bugzilla:

> 3.  XLink update.

> ACTIONs to Norm continued--expected due date October 12th.

> 4. XML errata.  The published 1.0 errata document is [8], the
>    published 1.1 errata document is [9], and the new (public)
>    Potential Errata (PE) document is [7]. 
> ACTION to Francois:  Update the PE document including
> issues raised on public-xml-testsuite@w3.org.

ACTION to Francois continued.

> 5. Namespaces in XML.
> Richard suggested we take NS 1.1 and revert the two 
> substantive changes (IRI and undeclared namespaces) 
> to create NS 1.0 2nd Ed. The WG has consensus to do 
> that, and we got approval from the team to do so.
> Ongoing ACTION to Richard:  Produce a draft for NS1.0 2nd Ed.
> We note that the IRI spec is now finished-RFC 3987-so 
> we have to issue an erratum for NS 1.1 for this.  We
> discussed some details of this under the XLink discussion:
> http://www.w3.org/XML/2005/02/xml-f2f-20050303-minutes.htm#xlink

> about what used to be called unwise characters.  For the 
> NS 1.1 erratum, the MAY paragraph doesn't apply since 
> namespace names cannot have the unwise characters.  (The 
> MAY paragraph will be needed for XML 1.* system identifiers.)
> ACTION to Richard:  Process an erratum to NS 1.1 to
> refer to RFC 3987: http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3987.txt

Glenn might be willing to be the editor for C14N V1.1.
