Test Suite
M: I have a proof of concept running.
    https://github.com/cmsmcq/ixml-tests
    https://github.com/cmsmcq/gingersnap
    Generates test cases and catalog files.
    There are some positive tests, and the negative test generator is 
running as we speak.
    
Discussions:
* Does ixml need a mailing list for discussion?
   S: W3C Community group?
   M: They do provide mailing list, archive and some visibility. We should 
look into it.
   S: (Looks up the conditions) We only need 5 people with W3C accounts to 
OK it.
   M: Let's do it!

* What is an ixml parser obligated to do?
   M: I don't remember what I asked. I think it needs discussion, but isn't 
urgent.


   M: It should be possible to generate a RNG grammar for any ixml
   grammar except for character data. I can match the element and
   attribute structure, in some cases I can generate patterns for the
   contents of attributes, but not all, but I can't require in RNG
   either a colon or equal sign appear in the text at this point. There
   are no constraints on text nodes in mixed content.
   S: But for the xml form of an ixml grammar we don't care about those
   things anyway. All we care about is there is a sequence of <rule>,
   and each <rule> has an @name and a sequence of <alt>s.


* How would you use ixml to define a language with reserved words?


* Any-character symbol
   S: [] would be unsatisfiable, but then ~[] would always match one 
character regardless. Hmmm ["z"-"a"] is already the empty set according to 
the spec!
   M: [] would normally be an error. The current grammar is nice because it 
gives you syntax errors, but I like the empty set. An ixml parser can issue 
a warning if needs be.


* Two possible additions to ixml? Epsilon and (?)
   M: The other was 'unsatisfiable', the empty set solution solves my 
problem.
