To: <public-xml-core-wg@w3.org>

The XML Core WG telcons are every other week.

Our next telcon will be December 16.

To make this report more manageable, I have deleted several
topics on which the status has not changed in the last couple
months and on which I don't expect the status to change soon.
These topics remain in our agenda/minutes.

Status and open actions

SC 34/WG 1 use of xml-model PI
SC 34/WG1 requested to be able to use xml-model for a PI target.

It has been reported that there would be problems 
with JTC1 writing the spec and then having W3C publish it.  One 
solution would be for us to write the spec (WG Note or Rec?) and 
then ISO would reference it.

Henry reports that IJ would be happy to see the WG produce a Note.

Paul wants the WG Note to be the complete spec so that someone
can reference it.

Paul wants to draft the note first as a starting point from which
ISO can write their spec--in coordination with us and as we redraft
our Note to keep it in sync--and then when they have a final spec,
we will finalize our Note with a reference to the ISO spec.

**** Now that our first draft of AssocSS is published, I'd like to
     have a WG decision as to whether we will produce a draft WG Note
     for xml-model or, if not, how we plan to proceed here.  ****

A new proposed draft is at

Paul sent comments on this latest draft at
They were mostly editorial, but Paul did request the addition of a para:

 Because applications are not required to support schemes other
 than the 'element' scheme, use of other schemes can reduce
 universal interoperability; such use SHOULD be carefully
 considered in each case.

Henry is okay with that addition.

Paul sent email to Chris at
to request confirmation that Chris has seen these comments and
plans to incorporate them.  No response to date after several attempts.

ACTION to Henry:  Try to contact Chris to extract a response
to Paul's email.
