I have updated the version at


to be closer to publication-ready.  I removed the "what we plan to do"
section and added a "changes since the first edition" appendix.

I used "Overview-review.html" but I can change that if appropriate.

I started on it before reading your mail, so I will reconsider it

I'm not sure why we would have a link to errata in a PER.  Obviously
we will need one in the Edited Recommendation but no-one should be
attempting to apply new errata to a PER.

It's hard to test XML Base, since there are no standard APIs for it
that I know of.  And applications that use XML Base won't resolve
the escaped / unescaped issue.  You could see what XSLT2's function
returns, but that is a rather limited test.
