Dear James:

The W3C XML Schema Working Group has spent the last several months
working through the comments received from the public on the last-call
draft of the XML Schema specification.  We thank you for the comments
you made on our specification during our last-call comment period, and
want to make sure you know that all comments received during the
last-call comment period have been recorded in our last-call issues
list (http://www.w3.org/2000/05/12-xmlschema-lcissues).

Among other issues, you raised the point registered as issue LC-66,
which inquires about the {name} property on the urType component.

The specifics of the situation have already been described in email
from Henry Thompson responding to your note, but in the long run the
entire topic was overtaken by events; the urType now has an explicit
name ("anyType"), so there is no occasion to consider whether "not
specified" needs to be distinct from, or the same as, "absent".

It would be helpful to us to know whether you are satisfied with the
decision taken by the WG on this issue, or wish your dissent from the
WG's decision to be recorded for consideration by the Director of
the W3C.

with best regards,

-C. M. Sperberg-McQueen
