Thanks for getting back to us, Ann.

/ "Bassetti, Ann" <ann.bassetti@boeing.com> was heard to say:
| Hello Norm, Bert, and others --
|
| (First, I apologize for my tardy response. I apparently overlooked
| Norm's original query, in my vacation email stack. Thanks for pinging
| me, Norm!)
|
| My colleagues really appreciate the time you took to consider this
| issue. (I'm really only the intermediary in this discussion.)  Of course
| they are a bit disappointed in the outcome, since you didn't end up
| agreeing with the solution they suggested. But they realize that you are
| considering a broad range of architectural issues, and accept your
| decision.
|
| Bottom line is that just really want this to work, and they won't really
| know until they try, which will be a few months hence. Apparently Boeing
| has a lot hanging in the balance. Once my colleagues start actually
| implementing, they'll let you know if there are problems. 
|
| Thanks again for your attention to our issue!
|
| Best -- Ann

| Ann,
|
| The XML Core WG has considered the issue you raised[1] at length. While
| opinion on this issue may remain divided, we believe that the consensus
| rests with the status quo. At least, within the XML Core WG, that is the
| consensus position. In brief:
|
| 1. The use of "xml:id" is consistent with xml:lang and xml:space.
|
| 2. The xml: prefix cannot be bound to other URIs, nor can other prefixes
|    be bound to the XML namespace name so the complxity that would arise
|    from those circumstances does not occur in practice.
|
| 3. While there are some issues with canonicalization, we perceive
|    these to be problems with the C14N specification.
|
| We hope that the discussion that followed your comment has been valuable
| and that you are satisified with our resolution of these issues. If you
| are not, please let us know.
|
|                                         Be seeing you,
|                                           norm
