RE: Suggested text for EPR note


This is VERY well stated.  It captures this situation perfectly.  Thank
you.  I will substitute the paragraph in the text.

Here is a draft of the paragraph about 'downstream' model processors.
See what you think.


NOTE: While the SML-IF consumer may recognize the new reference scheme
added by the SML-IF producer, we assume that the reference scheme will
NOT be recognized by a downstream SML model processor that acts on this
exchanged model. In the case where the SML model processor recognizes
the added reference scheme (e.g., if the SML URI Reference Scheme is
used to contain the document alias URI), the SML model processor would
attempt to resolve it by normal processing for that reference scheme.
Because this reference scheme was added simply to maintain SML reference
integrity in the SML-IF document (and does not actually represent
dereferencable URIs), an attempt to resolve the reference using this
added scheme will fail.  Implementations may take steps to prevent this
failure. For example, the SML-IF consumer should create an SML model
from the SML-IF document that is compatible with model processors
expected to use this model.
