           Summary: Specify namespace of the precisionDecimal datatype
           Product: XML Schema
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Note on precisionDecimal datatype

The current draft of the precisionDecimal note does not say what namespace the
datatype is in (at least not that anyone in the meeting could see).

This should be required as part of the documentation for implementation-defined
datatypes, so perhaps this will automatically be taken care of as part of the
resolution of bug 13421.  But if that turns out not to be the case, then that's
a gap in the requirements for implementation-defined datatypes.  (The rules for
implementation-defined types say a simple type definition is required; that
seems to entail specifying a namespace, but it might be helpful to be more
explicit.)  (There is also some question about how to make a conforming simple
type definition for a primitive, given that the base type has to be
xs:anySimpleType or xs:anyAtomicType, which aren't usually legal.  Further
investigation needed.)
