This message is to reflexively assure myself on behalf of the WG that
the WG will consider the problem but wishes to hold off until after
the PER, and to assure the WG that I'm happy with that decision.

(In case anyone pays any attention and wonders why I bother with this
message, the answer is that the WG needs both statements "on the
record" in order to clear administrative hurdles for publication of
XML Schema 1.0 2E.)
