Thank you Henry. Henry has done a fantastic job both as editor 
and as monitor of this mail list. However, he is a critical resource 
for the next several weeks and the entire Work Group has been 
tasked with getting the current design out. 

If your ideas and observations can help us with that task, 
please submit them here.

If your ideas are on how we should move forward after this design 
is released, hold on to them, or at least make the subject clear 
that the subject is for FUTURE.

If you have ideas about how to implement XML Schemas, perhaps 
it is time to have those on XML-Dev.

Regards, 
Dave Hollander - co-chair
C. M. Sperberg-McQueen - co-chair
