/ Bjoern Hoehrmann <derhoermi@gmx.net> was heard to say:
| Dear XML Core Working Group,
|   http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-xlink11-20050707/ appears to define
| pretty much no error handling. Please change the document such that
| either clear error handling requirements are defined or such that it
| is clear which for which error conditions implementations may react in
| an implementation defined way.

XLink 1.0 does not define error handling behavior. It simply
identifies those situations which are errors and leaves their handling
to the application.

While the WG recognizes that more detailed information about erorr
handling might be valuable, if consensus could be reached on what that
handling should be in the wide variety of applications that might use
XLink, it does not consider such additions to be within the narrow
scope of its charter for XLink 1.1. Consequently, the WG does not
expect to make any changes with respect to error handling for XLink

Please let us know if you find this explanation satisfactory.

                                        Be seeing you,
