The XML Schema WG discussed this issue at its telcon of 13 June 2008,
and agreed that in view of the work we have recently done on 
regular expressions, which has removed some of the variation in the
use of - in the lexical-space regular expressions, this issue should
be closed as FIXED.

We reminded ourselves that bug 5321 on the EBNF notation used to 
define the regex language is still open; MK pointed out that some
confusion arises from the fact that the grammar notation uses some
regex-like constructions, but not always exactly the same regex
constructions as the regex language we are defining.  The editors
expressed a hope that we could reduce the opportunities for confusion
by resolving 5321, which is classed editorial.

Michael, if you would report this resolution to QT and indicate their
acceptance or objection in the usual way, it would be helpful.  Thank you.
