Dear Murata-san,

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

Among other issues, you raised the point registered as issue CR-56: Specify
text/xml or application/xml

After some discussion the Schema Working Group decided to remain agnostic
about the mime type for XML Schema documents and say in the spec that
processors must accept text/xml and application/xml but may also accept
other mime types ( such as text/plain for example )

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.

Regards

Martin Gudgin
XML Schema Working Group
