Murray,

On behalf of the Schema WG, I am responding to your Last Call Issue number
177 - Tighten Conformance Rules.  This issue was discussed by the WG which
decided not to make any changes to the current rules.  In particular, there
seemed to be a sense that there are a wide variety of validation scenarios,
both related to how one retrieves schemata (such as treatment of the
schemaLoc attribute) and what validation is applied (strict, lax, skipped).
This had previously led to significant discussion in the group, and it was
not felt that new information had been provided.  On the other hand, this is
certainly an area where CR feedback may sway the group if our decisions are
shown to be unworkable in a practical sense.

For more discussion of this issue, you can look at the decision in the last
call itself at:
http://www.w3.org/XML/Group/xmlschema-current/lcissues.html#tighten-conforma
nce

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. 
Thank You,

Matthew Fuchs
