--- Comment #6 from C. M. Sperberg-McQueen <cmsmcq@w3.org>  2008-06-13 17:04:31 ---
The XML Schema WG considered this issue briefly at its teleconference
of 13 June 2008.  We observed that the WG does not have consensus on how
to resolve the existing problems with the specification of schema composition
and that periodic efforts to address composition issues over the last
four years have uniformly met with failure as a result.  The recent
decision to define an xs:override element (bug 4767) and to deprecate
xs:redefine (this bug, comment #2) have ameliorated but not really resolved
the situation.

So we have reluctantly agreed to close this issue for now with the hope
that it can be reconsidered and resolved later.

David, since you opened this issue on behalf of the XML Schema WG, it
can be assumed that you are resigned to this disposition, if not content
with it.  But it would be convenient if you would signal that fact
explicitly by closing the issue, or signal its opposite by reopening
the issue.  Thanks.
