Re: [Serialization] SCHEMA-K (qt-2004Feb0271-01)


     In [1], you submitted the following comment on the Last Call Working 
Draft of XSLT 2.0 and XQuery 1.0 Serialization on behalf of the XML Schema 
Working Group:

[K] [General] In the absence of 'Conformance' Section, what should a
processor do to claim conformance to this specification?

     Thanks to you and the Schema Working Group for this comment.  The XSL 
and XML Query Working Groups discussed your comment, and decided to add 
the following Conformance section to the Serialization draft:

10. Conformance

Serialization is intended primarily as a component that can be
used by other specifications.  Therefore, this document relies
on specifications that use it to specify conformance criteria
for Serialization in their respective environments.
Specifications that set conformance criteria for their use of
Serialization must not change the semantic definitions of 
Serialization as given in this specification, except by
subsetting and/or compatible extensions.

     May I ask you to confirm that this response is acceptable to the 
Schema Working Group?
