Several members of the XML Core WG have looked at
the ITS spec and have determined there are no issues
from our point of view.

> - not specifying elements and attributes directly, but 
> describing "data

> various schema languages.
> - describing the scope [5] of the ITS information, e. g. all 
> instances of  
> an element declared in a schema vs. all child elements of a 
> given node.  
> The latter methodology is relying on specified subsets of XPath.
> - assuring limited impact of ITS on existing schemes by using mainly  
> global attribute groups for the implementation of ITS data categories.
