The XML Core WG is pleased to see the publication of

Re: Norm's email on Syntactic variation in QNames:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2006Jan/0001

The XSL/XML Query group has defined how QName comparison
is done, and they do so using a collation which seems
to mean that two QNames that differ, say, in having
e&acute; versus &eacute; would compare the same which
is wrong.

Francois points out it even has case insensitive problems.

This seems wrong to us.

ACTION to Norm:  Carry forward this problem to XSL/XML Query.

ACTION to Norm continued.

> Thread 19--Schema issues

> Comments on the schema for xlink.

> ACTION to Henry:  Think about and reply to this one.

ACTION to Henry continued.  Estimated for end of January.

> 4. XML errata.  The published 1.0 errata document is [8], the

ACTION to Francois continued.  Estimated for next week.

> JohnC did a scan for MUST/SHOULD and reported at

ACTION to Henry continued. Estimated for end of January.

> 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
> Briefly, 3987 does have some wording (the "MAY" paragraph) 
> 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

> 6. Xinclude Rec was published 2004 December 30 at:

>  Canonical XML version 1.1
> 
>  The work on xml:id uncovered some inconsistencies
>  in Canonical XML version 1.0 (see xml:id CR,

> 
> We have CONSENSUS that we have been chartered to do a 1.1
> and that we should not try to do this as an erratum.
> 
> We are not sure how best to do this as a 1.1.  We should try
> to elaborate the possible ways of handling this and ask the
> C14N community how best to go about this.  For example, if
> we create a new namespace for C14N 1.1, what do we say the 
> old namespace means?  We'd like to avoid the flak we are

ACTION to Glenn continued.  Estimated for next week's meeting.

> 
> We had some discussion last week.
> 
> Norm argues that we should object to the use of the
> QName syntax for things that aren't QNames.  He also
> objects to the invention of a new mechanism for declaring
> things that look like namespaces when they aren't really.
> 
> Norm is still trying to understand whether there is an
> issue yet, and he needs to wait until they publish a
> document to be sure.
> 
> ACTION to Norm:  Raise this concern at the TAG level
> at the appropriate time.
> 
> 
> 11.  Henry raises that RFC 3023 is out of date and the draft
> replacement has expired.  Henry says there is a new draft
> expected soon (Murata-san will send something to Chris to
> publish soon).  
> 
> Chris is still hoping that he and Murata will be able
