           Summary: Naming in Override Constraints and Semantics

In "Schema Representation Constraint: Override Constraints and Semantics", 
is there any chance that:

- D1 could be changed to Doverridden and
- D2 could be changed to Doverriding?

Then:

2 One of the following must be true:
2.1 D2 has a targetNamespace [attribute], and its ·actual value· is 
identical to the ·actual value· of the targetNamespace [attribute] of D1 
(which must have such an [attribute]).
2.2 Neither D2 nor D1 have a targetNamespace [attribute].
2.3 D2 has no targetNamespace [attribute] (but D1 does).

becomes:

2 One of the following must be true:
2.1 Doverriding has a targetNamespace [attribute], and its ·actual value· is 
identical to the ·actual value· of the targetNamespace [attribute] of 
Doverridden (which must have such an [attribute]).
2.2 Neither Doverriding nor Doverridden have a targetNamespace [attribute].
2.3 Doverriding has no targetNamespace [attribute] (but Doverridden does).

This is a lot easier on the old brain!

Henry (Thompson) has suggested using Dold and Dnew for the names as they are
shorter.  (http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/xmlschema-dev/2009Nov/0007.html
)  I think there are pros and cons to both approaches and I'm happy to accept
what ever the WG thinks is clearest.

There are possibly similar name changes that could be made that would make 
the life of the reader much easier.
