With a heavy sigh I draw your attention to this excellent work.

Unfortunately this is an orphan piece - that in my opinion 
rightly belongs as work within the Schema and ebXML WG's
to ensure a single consistent and focused function set.

Right now I'm real un-easy about this splintering of efforts.

Clearly someone has woken up to the fact that the W3C Schema
requirement spec's are dated and out of synch with todays needs.

So let's have lots of little peripheral efforts filling in the blanks!?!

We can do this of course - may I mischievously suggest that we
now add a whole list of these?

Xversion
Xmodel
Xcodes
Xstruc
Xmasks
Xclass
Xredefine
Xneutral

With these all done, then we'll have the peices outlined in eDTD
that extend basic Schema and we won;t need a Schema proposal.

Is this where this is all headed??!

DW.
