Status and open actions

Error Recovery Note
Liam raised an issue about a note about error recovery at

This was discussed at the TPAC f2f, but those present did not
come to any consensus conclusions or action items.  We will
drop this item unless/until Liam comes back with some a
specific proposal.

xml-stylesheet and HTML5
Henry took an action to file a bug about xml-stylesheet
handling.  Done:

[Bug 17976] New: xml-stylesheet with type=text/xsl needs to be handled 
[Bug 14689] xml-stylesheet with type=text/xsl needs to be handled explicitly

A lot of bugzilla email has been exchanged on this issue.
It looks like we have agreement to address it, but only
in HTML.next.

This was discussed at the TPAC f2f.  The conclusion was
for Norm to pass on to the HTML5 WG suggested text for a
non-normative note to be included in the HTML5 1.0 spec
which he did:

XInclude 1.1
On 2012 February 14, we published
XInclude 1.1 Requirement and Use Cases

On 9 October 2012, we published our FPWD of XInclude 1.1 at

This was discussed at the TPAC f2f and there was agreement
on how to use MIME content types for the value of the parse

ACTION: Norm to revise the XInclude 1.1 draft to use media types
for the parse attribute.

RFC 3023bis and LEIRIs
Henry: I've been added as an editor and there is now a new draft,
draft-lilley-xml-mediatypes-00 at

We now await this going through the IETF process.

This is the W3C Community Group work on a subset of XML. See

Henry says that if they do decide to standardize it, we
should do it.  We do own that name.  Meanwhile, we will
wait and see what the Community Group produces.

Names that begin [Xx][Mm][Ll]
This was discussed at the TPAC f2f.

Norm: proposed erratum

   s/in this or future versions of this specification/
    /in this or future specifications from the XML Core WG or its successors/

Henry: I'm perfectly happy to entertain a motion to remove this from
this specification and retain the "xml:" prefix only for elements and
attributes and "xml-" only for PI targets.

Norm: I'd prefer to make explicit that you*can*  write names that
begin "xml", but doing so exposes you to being walked on in the
future. So don't do that.

Jirka: I can go either way, it's always been a restriction, users
should know better, but there are lots of documents that use it,
so we should adapt to common practice.

ACTION: Jirka to start an email thread about this issue on the
XML Core WG mailing list.
