We have considered your suggestion, which I have included below.  In the

specifications that this group produces, tables are used specifically to

define XML structures.  Since the life cycle messages are not restricted

to XML syntax, we decided to use a more general format in order not to

imply that XML was mandatory.  




As part of W3C process, please let us know if this response is

acceptable to you.  If we do not hear from you in two weeks, we will

assume that you accept our response.




Thank you,


Jim Barnett








Other specs often use tables to outline child elements and attributes. I

would recommend using a table, too.

One column of the table could define if a property is mandatory or


Also by using joint cells

mutually exclusive properties could be outlined well.
