FYI: The XML Processing Model Working Group has decided to abandon its
attempts to define a normative set of XML processor profiles.

In at least one respect, it can be argued that this document was never
going to satisfy the original goal (as it declined to define a single
XML processing model). It must also be recognized that this document
has been largely overtaken by events. The rise of JSON, for example,
has made "simple XML processors" much less broadly useful as a class.
Finally, review of this email archive will demonstrate that there are
still significant aspects of the characterization for which there is
not community consensus.

On behalf of the Working Group, I would like to thank everyone who
participated in the review process. "Thank you."

The Working Group intends to publish this draft:


as a Working Group note in the near future, subject to such minor
editorial changes as the editors see fit or that are necessary to get
it through the publication process.

                                        Be seeing you,
