           Summary: Namespace fixup and inherited attributes
           Product: XML Schema
           Version: 1.1 only
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Structures: XSD Part 1

The following is an excerpt from Michael Kay's email (member-only):

I think that where we describe the addition of the new property [inherited
attributes], we need to specify that the addition of an inherited attribute
to an element should invoke namespace fixup in the same way as adding a
defaulted attribute. (In most cases, of course, the namespace will already
be in scope, because it will have been declared on the element from which
the attribute is inherited. But namespace fixup can still be needed if the
relevant prefix has been rebound or unbound at an intermediate level.)

This also means that the inherited attribute may have a different prefix
from the original. The current text doesn't seem to give enough detail on
how the attribute information items in [inherited attributes] are
constructed; I think that there is a need to spell out the properties of
these information items in the same way as we do for defaulted attributes.
