Hello,

Per my action item from the 18 Nov face-to-face meeting,
here are a few comments on "Guidelines for the Use of
XML within IETF Protocols" [1]. I have not read [1],
but I read the previous draft and the comments still hold
in 07.

====

1)  There is no mention of design of accessible XML
   applications (though section 5 discusses I18N issues).
   W3C's "XML Accessibility Guidelines (XAG)" [2] is still in
   its infancy, but we should either (1) request that the authors
   of the Internet-Draft refer to it, or the TAG should refer to it
   above and beyond the Internet-Draft.

2) 4.9 Namespaces. I suggest that we request that, once we have
    resolved namespaceDocument-8 [3], the authors include
    text about what a namespace document should look like.

   [3] http://www.w3.org/2001/tag/ilist#namespaceDocument-8

3) 4.11 Binary Data and Text wtih Control Characters

    "XML does not allow 'control' characters....They may not be
    specified even using character entity references."

   Minor editorial: Change "may not" to "cannot be".
