           Summary: R-159: Bug in the spec wrt attribute defaults
           Product: XML Schema
           Version: 1.0
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XSD Part 1: Structures
        AssignedTo: ht@w3.org
        ReportedBy: sandygao@ca.ibm.com
         QAContact: www-xml-schema-comments@w3.org

The REC distinguishes between attribute decls and attribute uses in order to 
allow refs to global decls to have their own defaulted and/or fixed values. We 
correctly fall back from the use to the decl in checking fixed values, but we 
don't actually specify the fallback in building the default. This actually 
requires a one-word fix (insert 'effective' before {value constraint} in Schema 
Information Set Contribution: Attribute Default Value in section 3.4.5) with a 
link to the definition of effective value constraint.

This is a 'must fix', in my view.
