Eric,

Henry Thompson just pointed me to your XML hack article
http://xmlhack.com/read.php?item=781

It contains a couple of things that seem to be based on 
misunderstandings:

> Philipp Hoschka revealed a consensus between the concerned W3C 
> Working Groups 

There was consensus between the participants on the call, not
between the Working Groups - that is different.

>to block XML
>          Schema and XLink from leaving Candidate Recommendation 

That sounds more dramatic than it is, especially given
that XML Schema isn't in CR yet. 

>or 
> Working Draft status 

The condition on XML Schema is "leaving CR", not leaving WD status,
so this should be removed.

>until a solution is
>          found which will allow XLink to recognize XHTML and SMIL 
> Links;

There is no expectation that XLink needs to change; it says that
a "solution to generic link recognition" is needed.

To avoid confusing people, how about the following rewrite:

====

Philipp Hoschka revealed a decision by W3C that XLink and XML Schema
should 
not exit Candidate Recommendation status until a solution is found 
which allows generic link recognition of XHTML and SMIL Links; Tim
Berners-Lee 
has proposed that XML Schema can be the needed glue between these 
specifications.
