Message-ID: <CF83BAA719FD2C439D25CBB1C9D1D3020F01F53D@HQ-MAIL4.ptcnet.ptc.com>
To: <public-xml-core-wg@w3.org>

The XML Core WG telcons are every other week.

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

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

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":

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

Norm reviewed this for the XML Core WG at
and there has been some follow up email discussion.

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:

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

The NS PE doc is at

Richard added some discussion at
The WG agreed with his direction and asked that he go forward with it.

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

The xml:id Recommendation is at

John Cowan submitted a proposed erratum at

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

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

The LC review period ended 16 May 2008.

Norm has prepared a DoC at 

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

The Implementation Report at
is pitiful.  We'll need to augment this to be able to request PR.

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.

Simon has requested we consider revisions; see his email at
and his suggested draft at

See also Simon's email at
outlining various issues.

Paul sent email giving Arbortext's behavior and other comments at

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