Considering that XLink 1.0 has the same error and the XML Core Working
Group is required to maintain XLink 1.0, I don't see how the XLink 1.1
part of the charter is relevant here. If the XML Core Working Group
thinks this should not be fixed in any Technical Report on XLink, please
make a technically sound argument to back that up. If the Working Group
thinks this should be addressed but W3C should call for implementation
of XLink 1.1 with unresolved technical issues first, please make that
explicit.
