Hi Paul,

I couldn't find the link to a preliminary implementation report. Can
you add a statement that it doesn't exist (or a link to it)?
Also, it must include a link to changes since the previous
draft. There's only a link to changes since the previous REC. Can you
add this link?

Thank you,

> Canonical XML 1.1
> =================
> Abstract
> --------
> Canonical XML 1.1 is a revision to Canonical XML 1.0 to address
> issues related to inheritance of attributes in the XML namespace
> when canonicalizing document subsets, including the requirement not
> to inherit xml:id, and to treat xml:base URI path processing
> properly.
> Any XML document is part of a set of XML documents that are
> logically equivalent within an application context, but which vary
> in physical representation based on syntactic changes permitted by
> XML 1.0 [XML] and Namespaces in XML [Names]. This specification
> describes a method for generating a physical representation, the
> canonical form, of an XML document that accounts for the permissible
> changes. Except for limitations regarding a few unusual cases, if
> two documents have the same canonical form, then the two documents
> are logically equivalent within the given application context. Note
> that two documents may have differing canonical forms yet still be
> equivalent in a given context based on application-specific
> equivalence rules for which no generalized
> XML specification could account.
> Canonical XML 1.1 is applicable to XML 1.0 and defined in terms of
> the XPath 1.0 data model. It is not defined for XML 1.1.
