Hi Martin,

The XML Linking Working Group discussed your message [1]
during our conference call earlier today.

The material in question had been removed deliberately,
since the only escaping we can normatively specify
is the '^' for escaping unbalanced parentheses in XPointer
pointer parts. All the other escaping is normatively
specified in other documents. On re-examination, the
group agrees that a lot of that information, while
non-normative, is still very useful.

The group decided to provide the material as a non-normative
appendix in the next version of the XPointer Framework 
document. Between now and then we will be examining it
in light of the most recent IURI documents to see if any
changes are needed.

Thanks for bringing this up, I think the spec will be
more useful as a result.

Best regards,
Ron Daniel Jr.
