Subject: RE: Issue 29: Exist non-serialisable data models?

I agree it's not broken.  I think the point is that an XML 1.0 processor
will not recognize the attrs. as IDs, unless an external DTD or schema is
supplied (which can't be done in the message).  That might surprise some
folks, but it's not an error in the spec, I think.  Thanks for the
clarification.


From my opnion, we should not use attributes. Maybe use 
<MetaData>...</MetaData>
to make sense.
