I remember that we had discussed this, but did we agree on this proposal ?



>> Scott: Would it be clean enough (and simpler) to collapse the the xmlXAncestors parameters into a single parameter and just apply "combine" to only xml:base? Is there a need to use different rules for different attributes?

Seems like the various "modes" sort of go together given how the earlier algorithms work.


How about a new parameter "xmlAncestors" whose values can be

"inheritAll" : Simulate Canonical XML 1.0 behavior, which inherits all the attributes

"inherit" : Simulate the Canonical XML 1.1 behavior, where you inherit the inheritable attributes and combine the xml:base

"none" : Simulate Exc Canonical XML 1.0 behavior
