With respect to the action item on myself and Erik to investigate 
xsd:normalizedString due to an email [1] to the group, I checked with C. 
M. Sperberg-McQueen and Noah Mendelsohn, whose answers were consistent. 
Net-net, whether or not the tests of normalizedString are correct depends 
on a decision we have not really made about how to consume XML Schema. 
Michael commented that it is unfortunate there is no list of "things to 
consider" when consuming schema into another technology.  However, in this 
case both he and Noah indicated that a schema technology consumer is much 
more likely to agree with the authors of [1] that the "invalid" case is 
not invalid because the strings are normalized before validity checking 
because this makes it easier to simply consume a COTS schema engine.
