Hi all,

I think part of the issue was the movement towards an infoset based
approach.

I like the idea of quickly summarizing the issue on the list.  The TAG just
got this raised as an issue, and the topic of how to talk to xmlp group
didn't come up today in the telcon.  So a quick rationale might be a good
thing.  Of course, the group could wait until formally asked but that seems
somewhat inevitable.

We did have some offline discussions on this at the TAG f2f, and I think
xmlp's rationale will be sufficient, but I also think it's good for the TAG
to formally look at this issue from an overall web architecture issue.

Cheers,
Dave
