> 4.  LEIRIs--see http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#leiri
>
> We have planned to issue the following spec editions referencing
> LEIRIs (and any outstanding errata):
>
> * XML 1.0 6th Edition (John to be editor)
> * XML 1.1 3rd Edition (John to be editor)
> * XInclude 3rd Edition (Paul to be editor)
>
> but all this is on hold awaiting resolution of IRIbis.
>
>
> 5.  XInclude 1.1--see http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/Core#xinclude
>
> On 2012 February 14, we published
> XInclude 1.1 Requirement and Use Cases
> http://www.w3.org/TR/xinclude-11-requirements/
> summarizing the requirements and use cases for possible
> enhancements to XInclude addressing the issues:
>
> * @xpointer when parse="text"
> * copying attributes from the xinclude element to the root
>  included element
>
> Before producing an XInclude 1.1, we will need an amended
> charter as indicated by Ian at
> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2011Dec/0014
>
> We should wait to see what if any feedback we get from the
> published requirements and use cases and then, if we want
> to go ahead with an XInclude 1.1, we should look into amending
> our charter.
>
> We did get mostly positive feedback from Chris Lilley at:
> http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-xinclude-comments/2012Feb/0000 
>
>
> Norm has posted something to the DocBook TC:
> http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/docbook/201202/msg00001.html
> and at
> http://lists.oasis-open.org/archives/docbook/201202/msg00002.html
> was a follow up posting that (I believe) requested that we also
> augment XInclude to allow for including the *contents* of all
> the elements addressed by the xpointer attribute, but not the
> elements themselves.

Paul had sent email about this at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-xml-core-wg/2012Mar/0004
and we discussed it a bit on the call.

Henry pointed out
that he and Richard had implemented something like what
Paul was suggesting, so he thought it might be useful.

Norm pointed out the potential problems and didn't think we
should try to add this to XInclude.

We ended up deciding just to recommend the use of the xpath()
scheme and not add something here to XInclude.


>
> ACTION to Norm:  Continue to publicize the XInclude 1.1
> Requirement and Use Cases WG Note to potentially interested
> parties and see if you can drum up any feedback.
>


ACTION to Norm continued.



>
> 6.  XML Model
>
> Jirka reminded us that ISO published XML Model as an international
> standard.  One can buy it at
> http://www.iso.org/iso/iso_catalogue/catalogue_tc/catalogue_detail.htm?csnumber=54793 
>
>
> He said that the process is in order to try to allow the ISO version
> to be published for free.
>
> We will wait to see if it becomes freely available and then update
> our note to reference it.
>
> ACTION to Jirka:  Check with the ISO working group about the
> status of making the ISO version free.


ACTION to Jirka continued.
