Jake,
  The group's logic in removing the mention of  xinclude is that it is
_automatically_ available in any XML-based language. We did explicitly
call out xinclude in the drafts in which we removed <state src="">, just
so that readers would have some sense of what to replace src=.. with.
However we viewed that text as informative and, strictly speaking,
unnecessary, so we removed it as we got closer to last call.  Does that
make sense, or do you think that there are other reasons for mentioning
xinclude?

I'll look into example G.1 and try to clean it up for the next draft.

Subject: xinclude removed from SCXML specification, but example still
references it

Hi,

I was just looking over the latest version of the SCXML specification,
and I noticed that the language regarding referencing external SCXML
files using xinclude had been removed. It looks like this was removed
between the following drafts of the specification:

http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/WD-scxml-20100513/
http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/WD-scxml-20101216/

The only problem is that the Language Overview example in Appendix G.1
of the current draft appears to continue to make use of xinclude to
include content from Test2Sub1.xml into Main.scxml:
http://www.w3.org/TR/scxml/#N118AA

Furthermore, I believe example G.1 may be incorrect, as it appears that
the XML namespace prefix "xi" is never defined in Main.scxml.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks,

Jake
