DV doesn't think this spec is really about XML Core 
things, so perhaps comments such as John's should be 
more personal comments than XML Core comments.

Henry points out the issue of XML 1.0/1.1 is an 
XML Core issue.

Francois says that the one about the language tags 
(comment 2 in John's email) isn't an XML Core issue 
but is somewhat controversial.  Except it might 
become an XML Core issue if we feel we need to
change the XML spec accordingly.  I18N is also
reviewing this spec and will send in comments
about this.

DV:  Since they are changing the way you compute
years (numbering BCE years), they should use a
different namespace name.

Francois thinks they aren't changing it, but rather
that JohnC is suggesting the change.

Henry believes that the draft does make the change
(Richard agrees), and the Schema WG isn't sure about
changing the namespace name yet.

DV does think they should change the namespace name
so he can tell which semantics to use.

Henry suggests that very few people probably used
negative dates for BCE years, and the pain in changing
the namespace name may override the small incompatibility.

Changing the namespace name of everything would seem
to be overkill.  Henry and John feel that this is
such a minor thing that there shouldn't be any change
to namespace name or local name.

ACTION to Paul:  Send in John's comments to the Schema WG.


DV asks about any comments we might have on the XHTML 1.1 PR.

Norm says they are allowing any of the XHTML attributes
to be namespaced and used anywhere (including on non-XHTML
elements) and have the standard XHTML semantics.  Note
that this creates a global xhtml:id attribute.

Note there was no Last Call or CR for this.

ACTION to Paul:  Raise this issue to the XML CG.

Richard remains concerned that we don't say 
precisely what is a legal XML Resource Identifier,
and he figures he would need such to be able to
use this term in the namespace spec.

Richard decides he's okay with the wording Norm
has for this in the XLink 1.1 spec, and he will
be able to refer to it along with some other wording
in the NS 1.1 spec.

Norm tried again.

Anne proposed that we say any bad attributes are ignored.

John suggests that it's hard to know what attributes
to ignore when there are two attributes in conflict.

Norm agrees that we don't make any changes here.



event handling of nested links
ACTION to Paul:  Invite Bjoern to the XML Core f2f
for next week to discuss some of these open issues.

> 4. XML errata.  The published 1.0 errata document is [8], the
>    published 1.1 errata document is [9], and the new (public)
>    Potential Errata (PE) document is [7].

> John thought most of the mays were not official mays.
> This is now PE 148.
> ACTION to Henry [due Feb 22]:  Review the MAYs again and 
> create a marked up version with changes.

Henry produce a version at

Norm looked at it and approved it.

ACTION to John, Paul:  Review what Henry did.

> 5. Namespaces in XML.
> Richard suggested we take NS 1.1 and revert the two 
> substantive changes (IRI and undeclared namespaces) 
> to create NS 1.0 2nd Ed. The WG has consensus to do 
> that, and we got approval from the team to do so.
> Ongoing ACTION to Richard:  Produce a draft for NS1.0 2nd Ed.
> We note that the IRI spec is now finished-RFC 3987-so 
> we have to issue an erratum for NS 1.1 for this.  We
> discussed some details of this under the XLink discussion:

> namespace names cannot have the unwise characters.  (The 
> MAY paragraph will be needed for XML 1.* system identifiers.)
> ACTION to Richard:  Process an erratum to NS 1.1 to
> refer to RFC 3987: http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3987.txt
> There is a namespace PE:

It looks good, but we will take one more look
at the f2f and then request that it be published.

> 10.  Henry added a "forking QNames" item:

> We had some discussion last week.
> Norm argues that we should object to the use of the

> Norm is still trying to understand whether there is an
> issue yet, and he needs to wait until they publish a
> document to be sure.
> ACTION to Norm:  Raise this concern at the TAG level
> at the appropriate time.
> 11.  Henry raises that RFC 3023 is out of date and the draft
> replacement has expired.  Henry says there is a new draft

> Chris is still hoping that he and Murata will be able
