Hi Andrzej,

I had a look at CAM [1] which you talked about yesterday at the telecon. 
It seems to be that it CAM is made for the augmentation of schemas with 
additional information. One kind of information can be used to describe 
the relations of element and attribute names from different namespaces 
to an external knowledge base of names, in the CAM terminology "nouns". 
I'm not sure if that solves our problems, for example to avoid impact of 
ITS on existing markup schemes and documents, e.g. problems with XPath 
etc. What we need is a way to describe the relations of markup A from 
namespace to markup from namespace B, to be able to say s.t. "For this 
processing step,  IMAGINE that <html:span> is equal to <its:span>." With 
CAM, this seems to be possible through the "nouns" knowledge base, and 
there seems to be no mechanism to process "IMAGINE". Also it seems that 
there is not very much happening in the TC, the spec. was from 2004, and 
i didn't found many implemenations / applications.

I just had a quick look into this, so maybe my impression is wrong that 
this doesn't solve our problems. What do you think? Do you have more 

Best, Felix.
