Bjoern,

The Voice Browser Working Group (VBWG) is now completing its resolution of issues raised during the review of the Candidate Recommendation version of VoiceXML 2.1 [1]. Our apologies that it has taken so long to respond.

Following the process described in [2] for advancement to Proposed Recommendation, this is the VBWG's formal response to the issue you raised, identified as '111-8':

Implementations determine that a document is XML based on the media type. A normative reference to RFC 3023 will be added to the VoiceXML 2.1 specification, and the specific mention of 'text/xml' will be replaced with a reference to RFC 3023.

Please indicate before 17 November 2005 whether you are satisfied with the VBWG's resolution, whether you think there has been a misunderstanding, or whether you wish to register an objection.

If you do not think you can respond before 14 November, please let me know. The Director will appreciate a response as to whether or not you agree with the resolution. However, if we do not hear from you at all by 14 November 2005, we will assume that you accept our resolutions.

Thank you,

Matt Oshry
Chief Editor, VoiceXML 2.1

Subject: VoiceXML 2.1: <data> XML media types


Dear Voice Browser Working Group,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/CR-voicexml21-20050613/ states in section 5

  If the name attribute is present, and the returned document is XML,
  the VoiceXML interpreter must expose the retrieved content via a
  read-only subset of the DOM as specified in Appendix D.

It's not clear how implementations must determine whether a document is XML. For example, if the document is a HTTP resource labeled with a media type, which media types would indicate that the content is "XML"?
It seems a text/plain document would not be "XML", but a application/
xhtml+xml document would; please change the document such that it is
clear which media types must and must not be considered "XML" by Voice- XML 2.1 implementations.

The document also notes

  If the media type of the retrieved content is "text/xml" but the
  content is not well-formed XML, the interpreter throws error.badfetch.

It's not clear whether this also applies if the media type is e.g.
application/xml, please change the document such that this is clarified.

regards,
