------- Comment #6 from cmsmcq@w3.org  2007-09-24 17:21 -------
The Working Group discussed this issue during its call of 21 September
(http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-xml-schema-ig/2007Sep/0004.html)
[member-only link].

On the arguments raised in comment #2 and comment #3, there was some 
sympathy on both sides, but we did not reach clarity or agreement on what,
precisely, a health warning on this issue should say.  On the point 
raised in comment #4 about the finiteness of strings, the WG was
persuaded by arguments analogous to those in comment #5, to the effect that
the finiteness of lexical representations is important for theoretical 
reasons, even if no finite implementation can ever recognize more than
a small subset of some lexical spaces.

The upshot was that the WG decided to close this issue as WORKSFORME,
signaling that on further reflection we don't have agreement that there
is actually a problem to solve here.  I'm changing the status of the
issue accordingly.

It was noted that neither Paul Biron (who appears from the description to
have raised the issue initially) nor Michael Kay (who has expressed
a view in comment #3) was present; either of them (or anyone else, for
that matter) can reopen the issue if they can provide further information
that persuades the WG that there is a problem after all.
