------- Additional Comments From cmsmcq@w3.org  2005-09-08 22:01 -------
The Working Group discussed this issue at our face to face 
meeting in May 2005, and agreed that the correct thing to do 
was to change the structure of unions:  instead of the members 
of a union being only atomic and list types, unions should be 
allowed to be members of unions.  The 1.0 spec describes a
'flattening process' by which unions declared as having other 
unions as members actually got the members of those unions 
as members.  That flattening should be eliminated.

The Datatypes editors were instructed to prepare phase-2
wording to resolve this issue.

In the belief that this is to be treated as a requirement, not
a desideratum, I've given this report a Severity of 'critical'.
