I don't believe I claimed that it did.

| actively interested in discussing the id issue.

I'm one of them.

| I understand your position,
| and I understand that you prefixed your message with "some of my thoughts",
| but I was hoping you would more describe where the TAG is, that is divided
| on the issue and discussing it.

At the end of Monday's call, after you'd dropped off, I think, I was
asked to post my message with essentially the disclaimer that I
provided. I discharged my action item as requested.

In any event, I feel very strongly that the subsetting issue and the
other issues (like xml:id) *must* be dealt with separately. It would
be a procedural disaster, IMHO, to combine them.

I am very, very nearly convinced that doing nothing is the wrong
answer on the subject of xml:id, but I am absolutely certain that it
applies to XML in general and not only some possible subset.

                                        Be seeing you,
