We have a request from the Web Application Formats WG to review 
the Access Control for Cross-site Requests document.  The draft 
introduces a policy for performing cross-site requests (using GET

<event-source>, XBL, etc.:


Reviewing the <?access-control?> processing instruction might be 
of particular interest to XML Core.

ACTION to Henry:  Review this for XML Core.


MathML WG points out an upcoming WD of 

"XML Entity definitions for Characters"
