Hi Yves, all,

thanks for the update, Yves. Just two comments.

About the regex: the example is not compatible with XML Schema regex:

- the escaping mechanism with \uHHHH would need to be converted to numeric
character references &#xHHHH;
- <> need to be converted to &lt;&gt;
- Both \u0000 and \u001F are forbidden characters in XML.

We should either drop the regex at all, use XML Schema regex (I say your
counter arguments, so this is probably no option) or define a clear
specification about what to do when one uses XML Schema regex, e.g. have a
pointer to characters that are disallowed in XML and XML Schema regex

Aslo, about
"The information applies to the textual content of the element,
*including* child
elements.": should this include also attributes?
