CURIEs et al.
The XHTML2 Working Group plans to take CURIE Syntax 1.0 at:
http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/2008/ED-curie-20080122/ to Last Call.

Both Norm and Henry have reviewed it on the Tag list:

XML would have to change for CURIEs to do what they want to do.

The key issue with CURIEs is the restriction on name start
characters for the value of ids (which is now an NCName).

Henry asks us to consider changing the type of an id attribute
from NCName to NMTOKEN.

Norm sent his thoughts on redefining QNames at

John suggests we shouldn't change QNames--which are for element
and attribute names--but perhaps come up with another term--or
just use the term CURIEs--for this new concept.

Philippe says that sparql has already come up with a CURIE-like 
concept (and it is already a Rec):

Henry has done some research on the use of non-names for ids
on the web.

Norm blogged on a possible XML 2.0:


October Technical Plenary
The next Technical Plenary is scheduled for October in Cannes:
We need to decide if we wish to meet there.


Element Traversal Specification Review
We have been asked to review 
Element Traversal Specification (Web API WG)

John reviewed it at
and found no issues for us.  Philippe concurred at

3.  C14N 

The C14N 1.1 PR has been published:

Known Issues with Canonical XML 1.0 (C14N/1.0) WG Note 
has been published at

Using XML Digital Signatures in the 2006 XML Environment 
WG Note has been published at

4.  XML 1.0 5th Edition

The XML 1.0 5th Edition PER has been published at

5.  XML 1.0/1.1 4th/2nd Editions published 2006 August 16:

 Extensible Markup Language (XML) 1.0 (Fourth Edition)

 Extensible Markup Language (XML) 1.1 (Second Edition)

Henry/Richard discussed the test suite issues raised by Frans Englich:

These need to be resolved. 

Richard reports that the 2005 issue has been resolved in the 
latest draft. 

The one from 2006, character references with numbers with 
dozens of digits, may not be. 

ACTION: Richard to construct a test case for these issues.

At some point in the future (e.g., six months after XML 1.0 5th
Edition is a Recommendation) we might consider deprecating XML 1.1.

6. Namespaces in XML 1.0/1.1 2nd Editions published 2006 August 16:

 Namespaces in XML 1.0 (Second Edition)

 Namespaces in XML 1.1 (Second Edition)

Richard has recorded Anne's issue/proposed resolution at

ACTION to Richard:  Look into Anne's (two) comments at


We discussed processing an erratum to NS 1.0 that adds the 
ability to undeclare a namespace prefix in NS 1.0.

We could probably make NS 1.0 a copy of NS 1.1 with appropriate
minor changes.

7.  LEIRIs

Martin's latest IRI draft (defining LEIRIs in section 7) is at 

Martin's latest email is at

Paul's summary of what comes next spec-by-spec is at

8.  XML Base 2nd Edition 2nd PER

The (Second Edition) XML Base PER has been published at

Richard has produced a PER-ready draft of XML Base at:

We will plan to publish this as a second PER in the March
timeframe with the understanding it can't go to Rec until 
the IRI RFC is republished.

ACTION to Richard:  Add a para to the SOTD explaining that we
will await for the 3987bis to become an RFC before going to Rec.

ACTION to Richard: Update refs (to XML and NS) to be undated.

Paul drafted a transition request for XML Base 2nd Ed (2nd) PER at:

ACTION to Henry, Philippe, and Richard:  Review Paul's draft
transition request for XML Base.

We will plan for the WG to approve to go to PER on our next
telcon on March 12.

After the transition is approved, Paul makes a pub request
and Henry writes and sends out an announcement.

9.  XLink update.

The XLink CR was published at

The latest almost PR-ready XLink draft is at

Norm posted a DoC at

Paul wrote a SECOND draft PR request at

We decided the next step would be another LC.

LEIRI reference:
 Section 5.4: 

 replace para starting:

  The value of the href attribute is an XML resource identifer...


  The value of the href attribute is a LEIRI [ref].

 and then delete subsection 5.4.1 but move the para about 
 relative references up into 5.4.

ACTION to Norm:  Suggest any other appropriate changes to XLink 1.1.

ACTION to Norm:  Produce diff/review version.

ACTION to Norm: Produce a LC-ready draft of XLink 1.1 with 
a reference to the IRI RFC for LEIRIs.

John suggests we have two levels of conformance at

10.  XInclude 3rd Edition

XInclude 2nd Edition is at:

LEIRI-related changes for the 3rd Edition:

3.1, href attribute is a LEIRI

See also 4.1.1 (details TBD) which can't reference XML 1.1
since we don't define XML Resource Identifiers in XML 1.1.
Just replace that para with the "They are LEIRIs" para.

See also
for more details on the necessary changes.

ACTION to Daniel: Produce a PER-ready draft of XInclude 3rd Ed
with appropriate references to the IRI RFC for LEIRIs.
