[Bug 4676] why we did not use sml:reftype in documentURI


           Summary: why we did not use sml:reftype in documentURI
           Product: SML
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://www.w3.org/2005/06/tracker/sml/actions/76
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Interchange Format
        AssignedTo: cmsmcq@w3.org
        ReportedBy: johnarwe@us.ibm.com

The submitting working group discussed whether or not to make the documentURI
element of type sml:refType (an SML reference) instead of making it of type
xs:anyURI as is done in the submission.  The group at that time saw no clear
need for an SML reference in this context, wanted to avoid what was seen as
unnecessary complexity, and noted that locatorType (which contains the element
declaration for documentURI) includes an xs:any and xs:anyAttribute for
extensibility, so it could support SML references in locators without schema
updates using any scheme the implementation supports.
