XML Core WG Status and Open Actions as of 2009 March 23

From: Grosso, Paul <pgrosso@ptc.com>
Date: Mon, 23 Mar 2009 10:40:11 -0400
Message-ID: <CF83BAA719FD2C439D25CBB1C9D1D3020EEE9CCE@HQ-MAIL4.ptcnet.ptc.com>
To: <public-xml-core-wg@w3.org>

The XML Core WG telcons are every other week.

This is usually a telcon week; however,
we have cancelled the telcon of March 25th
(AC meeting), so our next telcon will be April 8.


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

Allowing canonical equivalents to be treated as identical 
directly in XML implies that an element's start tag and
end tag could be character-for-character different.  This
is not currently the case--such would be not well-formed
and the input is therefore not XML--and the WG does not want 
to make it the case.

We had no objections to adding some "motherhood" notes saying 
that XML producers SHOULD produce normalized output.

We are still considering whether we should put XML 1.1 wording
about normalization checking into XML 1.0.

ACTION to Henry:  Discuss with others at the AC meeting
the possibility of adding to XML 1.0 via erratum the 
"should" normalization checking from XML 1.1.

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


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
---------------------------------

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.

Unfortunately, this is already a PR, and I'm not sure I can wrap my
head around this just now without help and we don't have a telcon
scheduled until April 8.  If anyone has any ideas, please send email.


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). 

ACTION to Norm:  Review this for the XML Core WG.


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.


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:  Ensure the DoC is up to date.

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.

ACTION to Paul:  Draft a PR transition request.


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

XInclude 2nd Edition is at:

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

and reply to Simon's email with results and suggested resolutions.
