Not yet, I am still working on it.

The goals are:
- be more precise than M&S about things like namespaces, references in XML
Literals, (see e.g. the MathML example at the end of M&S - it needs
namespaces in the XML literal).
- provide an equality function over XML literals so that we can write test
cases, and so the model theory works.
- not screw up anything that anyone is doing that is a reasonable reading of
M&S
- not require new work from implementators who currently do not have
problems

I would be very interested in talking through the full proposal with you
once I've posted it to the WG. It would be very good to get detailed
feedback from people for whom this is important.  I'll send you an e-mail
next week to see if we can get half-an-hour on the phone.
