The first question to ask is, what forms of validation will the WG
I am sure that an XML Schema based on [1] will be included 
as normative. IMHO a Relax NG should also be included; the 
language is very popular and this will certainly be a demonstration 
of good will from W3C.
I also suppose a DTD will probably be offered as well (based on [2]). 
The above three may not provide the same level of validation though... 
Has the WG considered this as a problem? 
What are the current intentions on validation modules?

> namespace="##other" with processContents="skip", you mean?

Yes. Here's something based on [3]:

   declaring this as an attribute group per the existing WG practice 
<xs:attributeGroup name="skipOtherNSValidation">
  <xs:anyAttribute namespace="##other" processContents="skip"/>

   added to the attribute group for the meta element
<xs:attributeGroup name="meta.attlist">
 <xs:attributeGroup ref="I18n.attrib"/>
 <xs:attribute name="http-equiv" type="xs:NMTOKEN"/>
 <xs:attribute name="name" type="xs:NMTOKEN"/>
 <xs:attribute name="content" type="Text" use="required"/>
 <xs:attribute name="scheme" type="Text"/>
 <xs:attributeGroup ref="skipOtherNSValidation"/>

<xs:complexType name="meta.type">
 <xs:attributeGroup ref="meta.attlist"/>

Um... forgive my ignorance but my age puts me in the "new generation" 
of authors; I have never used DTDs. Can we offer the above functionality

using DTDs?

The above may seem kind of loose; one may argue that I can put any 
number of attributes and still be valid. That is the intention, since
document is always the subject and each attribute-value pair 
corresponds to predicate-object, so we do have correct triples.

Finally, will the WG consider to document the use of the link element 
for metadata purposes?

<link rel="meta" href="someName.rdf" />
