           Summary: Consider effect of XML 1.1-based XSD types on Schema 1.1
           Product: XML Schema
           Version: 1.1
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 2000
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XSD Part 2: Datatypes
        AssignedTo: cmsmcq@w3.org
        ReportedBy: noah_mendelsohn@us.ibm.com

We have closed RQ-152 [1] with a decision that in XML Schema 1.1 our types such
as xsd:Name will be defined in terms of the pertinent productions from XML 1.1.
 It has been suggested that while this decision is in some ways supportive of
the needs of XML query "Implementation Defined Item" [2] that enables XML 1.1,
our decision is arguably problematic for the many implementations that will use
query in "XML 1.0 mode".

While we have not at this time decided to reopen RQ-152, this is a request to
open a separate issue which is to (a) ensure that we are taking appropriate
steps to ensure that the implications of our current RQ-152 resolution are
understood by the rest of the XML community and (b) to explore, possibly in
conjunction with the Query workgroup, what approaches to XML 1.1 support would
help to maximize the adoption of Schema 1.1 by Query.   One possible outcome of
such efforts would indeed be a decision to reopen our resolution of RQ-152, I.e.
to change the Schema 1.0 definitions of types such as xsd:Name.
