           Summary: Length facets on QName types
           Product: XML Schema Test Suite
           Version: 2006-11-06
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: NIST tests
        AssignedTo: ht@inf.ed.ac.uk
        ReportedBy: mike@saxonica.com

The NIST tests in the QName directory include a number of tests (easily
identified by their names) which test the use of the length, minLength, and
maxLength facets applied to xs:QName values. The specification permits these
facets but states that they are deprecated, and attaches no meaning to them.
The expected test results appear to assume that the facets will be ignored (for
example the value xthe:aand-be.qua is considered valid when the schema
specifies a maxLength of 1).

If the specification intends that these facets should be ignored, then it
should say so. Since the spec as written doesn't say what a processor should do
with them, it would be better for the tests to be removed, or for the results
to be flagged in some way as undefined.
