Michael:  I wonder whether it would be more accurate to suggest that:

"we have defined the >schema for the< xop namespace as non-normative"

I believe the namespace name is normative, as are the rules in the (draft) 
Recommendation for use of that namespace.  It's just the XML Schema which, 
as Fujisawa-san points out, is non-normative.

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
