Fujisawa-san,

You raised an issue, number 494 [1], regarding the non-normative xop namespace in 
section 1.3 of the XOP LC specification [2]. The issue you raise is that the xop 
namespace should be normative to be consistent with the normative nature of rep 
namespace defined in the SOAP Resource Representation Header LC specification [3]. 

The XMLP WG rationale to differentiate the normative nature of these namespaces 
stems from the introduction of XML 1.1 and its impact upon XMLP specifications (See 
Rec Issue 20 [4]). Since the Representation Header specification and the rep 
namespace is SOAP specific, only XML 1.0 applies and hence the we define this rep 
namespace as normative. However, XOP is NOT SOAP specific and thus needs to allow for 
either XML 1.0 or 1.1. Thus we have defined the xop namespace as non-normative.

If this rationale is NOT acceptable to you please let the working group know as soon 
as possible.

Regards

Mike Mahan
For the XMLP Working Group
