------- Comment #1 from cmsmcq@w3.org  2007-10-30 01:56 -------
On 21 September 2007 the WG accepted a wording proposal 
(http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/attachment.cgi?id=489)
which allows for empty unions.

The WG determined to leave this issue open until an issue of
editorial consistency was addressed.  I think this related
to the difference between saying that a given sequence-valued
property was empty and saying that it was absent, but the
minutes of 21 September 
(http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-xml-schema-ig/2007Sep/0004.html)
are slightly hazy on the subject.  If my memory is correct, the consistency
issue is related to that mentioned in bug 3869 relating to the treatment
of annotation components, and the two should be dealt with in tandem.
