Issues you raised and VBWG responses


Issue CR7-1
I would like to object that all the examples in VoiceXML2 come with an
XML declaration and a schemaLocation attribute. It makes the language
appear unneccesarily complex. The Hello World example would be much
simpler as:

<vxml xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2001/vxml" version="2.0">
    <block>Hello World!</block>

schemaLocation bothers me more than by just making the examples hard to 
read. It suggests that the declaration is mandatory (which the XMLSchema
refutes), or even that the use of the schema is.

CR7-1 Resolution: rejected 

It is good practise to provide the XML declaration (even though it is
not mandatory). Providing the schemaLocation allows documents to be
validated automatically by various tools, although as you correctly
point out neither the attribute nor schema are mandatory.
