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.

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.

We decided the next step would be another LC.

Norm provided an update at
http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/2004/xmlcore/xlink11/ and

John suggests we have two levels of conformance at

ACTION to Norm:  Amend section 3.3 to reflect two levels of
application conformance, simple and complete.

We will plan to approve going to LC during our next telcon.

We plan to skip CR this time.

Paul sent out an announcement about our upcoming plans at

Note: There is a publication moratorium April 15-28.

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.
