ISSUE-77 (xsd-c14n): XSD canonicalization – 1.0 or 1.1? [R2RML]

Raised by: Richard Cyganiak
On product: R2RML

So it turns out that XSD canonicalization is actually very different between XSD 1.0 and XSD 1.1. Quite a lot has changed – I don't have the full picture but handling of time zone offsets is different, handling of decimals appears to be different, and who knows what else.

Given that XSD 1.1 is in the CR stage, I don't feel very good about writing spec text that asks R2RML/DM implementers to implement XSD 1.0 canonicalization rules that will soon be obsolete.

On the other hand, given that XSD 1.1 is not yet at REC stage, we can't write spec text that normatively prescribes the use of XSD 1.1 canonicalization rules.
