Dear Chris,

Thanks for your comments on the Last Call version of the QA Framework:
Specification Guidelines[0] - 22 November 2004

After two weeks from now (on May 18, 2005), the lack of answer will  
be considered as if you had accepted the comment.

Original comment (issue 1149 [1]):
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-qa/2005Mar/0004.html

As a response to your comment, the QA Working Group has accepted your  
comment and the following examples[2] have been added to SpecGL:

[[[
As a separate example, any specification that defines the behavior of  
a class of
product that creates XML should address creation of XML 1.1 and  
anticipate
future XML versions. In XSLT, creation of XML is specified by  
<xsl:output
method="xml" version="1.0" />, and each version of XSLT defines the  
allowable
range of values for the version attribute. Another option is to  
reference the
XML Infoset - for instance, XML Inclusions are compatible both with  
XML 1.0 and
XML 1.1 since they reference normatively the XML Infoset, which is  
the same for
the two versions of XML.

In its section Referencing the Unicode Standard and ISO/IEC 10646, the
specification Character Model for the World Wide Web 1.0:  
Fundamentals [CHARMOD]
gives a detailed indications for referencing Unicode Standard and ISO/ 
IEC 10646.
Specification editors are encouraged to follow these recommendations.
