I was trying to say that it would be >plausible< to read the existing text 
as requiring that.  It's not what I thought we meant to say, and it's not 
IMO the only plausible reading.  Then again, in appendix C we now go to 
some trouble to make clear that "Conforming processors may provide access 
to some or all of this information", and the chapter 2.4 wording on 
minmimal conformance seems to be intentionally different.  In that sense, 
the XSD 1.1 2.4 wording is >more< suggestive of a requirement for full 
exposure than the same wording was in XSD 1.0.

Anyway, it seems that we agree on the significant points, which is good.

In that case, I don't understand your taking the position
that the current definition of minimal conformance
requires full exposure of the PSVI.
