------- Additional Comments From cmsmcq@w3.org  2005-12-09 03:50 -------
The proposal put forward in August was approved with
amendments at the WG meeting in Edinburgh in September
2005.  The amended text was incorporated into the 
status-quo document 8 December 2005.

The WG decided to continue to define the lexical space 
of strings by reference to the set of legal XML characters,
rather than expanding the space to allow 
Unicode characters not legal in XML.  One argument for
this result was that some users will legitimately want
to ensure that their data can be written out in legal
XML; if the lexical space of string were expanded, a
second type with the restrictions of XML would be needed;
the same would hold of the entire type hierarchy 
headed by string.  The alignment with XML seemed 
preferable to having a parallel type hierarchy.
