Thank you for your comments on the XPointer Framework Last Call draft,
which are archived at: 


The XML Linking Working Group has collected all the comments
on the documents and decided what changes to make to the draft.
The dispositions of your comments are given below. Please reply
to www-xml-linking-comments@w3.org within one week if you wish
to make a formal objection to these decisions.

[paraphrase of request:]  add pointer parts for binding variables
and extension function libraries in XPointers.

The group decided for the spec to remain silent on this, thus not
prohibiting scheme developers from adding new material (not limited
to variable bindings and function libraries) to
the evaluation context. Such developers can't rely on all
supporting it, of course, but that is always the case when adding
a new capability. Implementations that don't understand a new
pointer part will skip it, thus not adding or using the extra stuff
in the context. Implementations that do understand the schemes will
have an evaluation context with whatever additional content is needed
to support the schemes. 

Best regards,

Ron Daniel Jr.
Acting chair, XML Linking Working Group
