           Product: XML Schema
           Version: 1.1 only
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP

          Priority: P2

At the end of section 5.3:

"In the case of element information items, processors MAY choose to continue
·assessment·: see ·lax assessment·."

But in the definition of "lax assessment" in 3.4.4:

"If the item cannot be ·strictly assessed·, ...the element information item's
schema validity MUST be laxly assessed ..."

Note the difference between MAY and MUST. A couple of issues:
- Since the intention is to require "lax assessment", seems 5.3 needs to be
updated to also use "MUST".
- The current definition of "lax assessment" doesn't seem to cover the case
mentioned in 5.3.
