Pete Cordell asks:

> Do you have a timetable on when you will be making decisions about 
<all>? 

Well, first of all, I can't speak official for the workgroup on any of 
this.  Even if we were to make a tentative decision tomorrow, it would all 
have to go through the process of being published in working drafts, 
verified in a Candidate Recommendation period, etc. before we'd know what 
would actually make it to a recommendation.  That said, my intuition is 
that there is a period of 2-3 months during which a number of major issues 
will be seriously considered.  <all> is one of those.  Co-constaints are 
another, and so are versioning-related mechanisms.   Exactly how the time 
will be allocated, and whether formal proposals will be made in any or all 
of these areas is TBD until a working draft is actually published.  If you 
feel you need more detailed scheduling information, I suggest you contact 
our chair, David Ezell.  He may have more insight into what is likely to 
happen when.  If you or any others on this list are w3c members, you can 
track our discussions of these issues in the schemas IG archive [1] (w3c 
members only).

Thank you.
