I have thought that this kind of issue which doesn't seem to belong to 
any WG but is at the frontier between different groups (there are at 
least 4 groups which IMO could feel concerned -namely W3C XML Schema, 
DOM, XPath/XSLT and XQuery) would be better handled by the TAG.

Sorry if this is pure ignorance of the W3C policies and usages on my 
side and a waste of your time!

I have not formally submitted the issue to the WGs but have asked the 
question during the schemas town meeting in Orlando and it has been 
discussed at several occasions on XML-Dev. See for instance the threads:

http://lists.xml.org/archives/xml-dev/200104/threads.html#00430
http://lists.xml.org/archives/xml-dev/200110/threads.html#00556
http://lists.xml.org/archives/xml-dev/200112/threads.html#00146

Yes, but as far as I know this is a non official work.

Thanks
