[Bug 16181] New: should schZ014_b be valid?


           Summary: should schZ014_b be valid?

          Priority: P2

In my opinion test schZ014_b of set MS-Schema2006-07-15 should be valid for
schema 1.1. Or is there any clause in the spec which prohibits empty values for
the targetNamespace attribute? 

The anyURI datatype doesn't ("The ·lexical space· of anyURI is the set of
finite-length sequences of zero or more characters (as defined in [XML]) that
·match· the Char production from [XML].")

Section 3.17.2 XML Representations of Schemas says: "...supplying an empty
string for targetNamespace is incoherent, and is not the same as not specifying
it at all."

So an empty value for targetNamespace is incoherent but not prohibited. Or is
there some other clause in the spec which prohibits empty strings for the
targetNamespace attribute?
