   Henry gives possible regrets

  The latest “flowchart” branch (section 5.10, p:inline “flowchart”).


   Henry: I think this looks better.
   ... What about the text/* story? Isn't that missing?

   Norm: Right. Yes it is.
   ... Back to the editor it goes.

   Some discussion of non-text/* media types that are in fact text.

   Consensus: Maybe but we're not going to try to handle those.

   Alex: What about application/json?

   Norm: You have to mislabel that or encode it, I think.

   More discussion leads to the conclusion that it's just characters.

   scribe: You lose if it's not just a sequence of characters.

   Henry: If it's an XML media type, we're done.
   ... If it's not XML, it must a single text node.
   ... anything else is an error.
   ... The characters in that text node are then available as the data in the
   specified content type.

  The “variables” anywhere branch. (Completes ACTION A-273-01 on Norm.)


   Henry: In 2.6, there's nothing that says where the scope ends.
   ... I think I want a link to "lexically scoped."
   ... I'd remove in-scope bindings from the environment alltogether. The
   environment is just the readable ports story.
   ... Remove (3) from the first list in 2.6.
   ... Maybe call it the 'port environment'. And then you don't say anything
   about variables and options in this section at all.

   Norm muses about the boundary of nested p:declare-steps.

   Henry: Something like p:pipeline/p:declare-step define a scope and inherit
   ... I would hope that In-scope variables in 2.7.1, could read "because V &
   O are lexically scoped, the in-scope variables are the union of the
   in-scope specified options and the in-scope variable bindings.
   ... I wonder if 2.11 needs to be Variables & Options and have subsections
   for each.

   Norm: Ok, that's plenty to work on for a new draft.

  Any other business?

   Alex: We should try to work on getting a new public working draft out
   after Sapporo.

   Norm: I think that makes sense.
   ... I'll try to get something ready to talk about in two weeks.
