Status and open actions
=======================

Unicode normalization in XML 1.0
--------------------------------
Addison Phillips of I18N sent email about 
Unicode Normalization in XML 1.0 5th Ed.; see
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2009Feb/0019

Paul provided a status update to Addison and I18N at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2009Mar/0005

We decided to add a note; Paul sent draft wording at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2009Apr/0019


HTML request for clearer XML serialization
------------------------------------------
Henry raised the issue that HTML folks think the XML
spec is broken because it doesn't define error recovery
and doesn't discuss serialization.

ACTION to Henry:  Send email to the XML Core WG list
outlining the suggestion to define a serialization spec
including the rationale.


Overlap between Powder and LEIRIs
---------------------------------
At
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2009Mar/0006
Henry writes:

Please review section 2.1.3 of the forthcoming draft of Protocol for
Web Description Resources (POWDER): Grouping of Resources [1]:  It
says things about e.g. entity expansion which I think at risk of
confusing proper layering, and it also doesn't seem to recognise the
LEIRI spec.

This spec just went back to Last Call.

John reviewed especially section 2.1.3 of the POWDER spec at
http://www.w3.org/2007/powder/Group/powder-grouping/20090309.html#canon
and only had an issue with spaces and + signs; see
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2009Apr/0013

Per Thomas Roessler at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2009Apr/0018
the WG may have already dealt with this issue.


Pointer Methods in RDF
----------------------
The ERT WG has issued a FPWD entitled "Pointer Methods in RDF":
http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/WD-Pointers-in-RDF-20090310/

This seems to overlap with XPointer (or it should). 

Norm reviewed this for the XML Core WG at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2009Mar/0014
and there has been some follow up email discussion.

Paul sent in the XML Core WG comment at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2009Apr/0020


ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 34 request to use "xml-model" as a PI target
-------------------------------------------------------------
ISO/IEC JTC 1/SC 34 has requested at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2009Apr/0001
that they be allowed to use "xml-model" as a processing instruction
target name token.

John thinks we should approve this.  Henry worries that people
will then expect that this is something from W3C, but he will
not stand in the way.

We should consider adding entries for xml-stylesheet and xml-model 
to the xml namespace document at http://www.w3.org/XML/1998/namespace.

[I don't have a decision or action listed here.]


XML Test Suite
--------------
See also http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xml-test-suite

Henry/Richard discussed the test suite issues raised by Frans Englich:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-testsuite/2007Mar/ 

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


Namespaces in XML 1.0/1.1
-------------------------
See also http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#ns1.0 and
http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#ns1.1.

The NS PE doc is at
http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/2001/05/proposed-xml-names-errata.html

Richard added some discussion at
http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/2001/05/proposed-xml-names-errata.html#npe29
The WG agreed with his direction and asked that he go forward with it.

ACTION to Richard:  Fill in a proposed resolution for NPE29.

Henry will work with Richard on NPE29.

We will then plan to issue NS 1.0 3rd Ed.

Whether we put ns prefix undeclaration into NS 1.0 3rd Ed
remains an open issue.


xml:id
------
The xml:id Recommendation is at
http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/REC-xml-id-20050909/

John Cowan submitted a proposed erratum at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2009Jan/0009

Consensus:  The sentence "A document that uses xml:id attributes
that have a declared type other than xs:ID will always generate 
xml:id errors" in Appendix D.3 should be deleted.

ACTION to Henry:  Update the Errata document at
http://www.w3.org/2005/09/xml-id-errata

ACTION to Henry:  Think about the appropriateness of
the same sentence in Appendix D.2.


XLink 1.1
---------
See also http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xlink1.1

The XLink 1.1 Last Call has been published at
http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/WD-xlink11-20080331/

The LC review period ended 16 May 2008.

Norm has prepared a DoC at 
http://www.w3.org/XML/2008/05/xlinklc/

ACTION to Norm:  Update the DoC.

ACTION to Norm:  Update XLink 1.1 to refer to the LEIRI note.

There's an open question about whether the XSD/DTD 
should default the xlink:type attribute value. 
None of this effects our last call because the
XSD/DTD are not normative.

ACTION to Henry, John:  Produce a basic level
conformance XSD and RelaxNG schema for XLink.

We plan to skip CR and going directly to PR.

Paul drafted a PR transition request at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2009Mar/0013

The Implementation Report at
http://www.w3.org/XML/2006/01/xlink11-implementation
is pitiful.  We'll need to augment this to be able to request PR.

Simon Cox, on behalf of the Open Geospatial Consortium, has
asked some questions about the XLink 1.1 XML Schema:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-linking-comments/2009JanMar/
0004
and ht replied:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-linking-comments/2009JanMar/
0005

We did not get to this topic--Paul sent email at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2009Apr/0011
to (try to) start more discussion.


XInclude 3rd Edition PER
------------------------
See also http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xinclude

XInclude 2nd Edition is at:
http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/REC-xinclude-20061115

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


Associating Stylesheets
-----------------------
See also http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#assoc-ss

Associating stylesheets with XML version 1.0 is at:
http://www.w3.org/1999/06/REC-xml-stylesheet-19990629/

The Errata document is at:
http://www.w3.org/1999/06/REC-xml-stylesheet-19990629/errata

Simon has requested we consider revisions; see his email at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2009Feb/0002
and his suggested draft at
http://simon.html5.org/specs/xml-stylesheet5

See also Simon's email at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2009Feb/0014
outlining various issues.

Paul sent email giving Arbortext's behavior and other comments at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2009Feb/0022

ACTION to Henry:  Determine Saxon behavior in various erroneous cases
and reply to Simon's email with results and suggested resolutions.

ACTION to Paul:  After receiving Henry's email, send email with
a concrete set of suggested revisions to the Assoc SS spec.
