Last Call: Service Modeling Language (SML) 1.1; SML Interchange Format

   The Service Modeling Language Working Group has published Last Call
   Working Drafts of "Service Modeling Language, Version 1.1" and
   "Service Modeling Language Interchange Format, Version 1.1." The
   former defines a language for modeling complex services and systems,
   including their structure, constraints, policies, and best
   practices. The latter defines an interchange format for SML. The
   format identifies the model being interchanged, distinguishes
   between model definition documents and model instance documents, and
   defines the binding of rule documents with other documents in the
   interchange set. Comments are welcome through 26 March. Learn more
   about the Extensible Markup Language (XML) Activity.


Last Call: Element Traversal Specification

   The Web API Working Group has published the Last Call Working Draft
   of "Element Traversal Specification." This specification defines
   the ElementTraversal interface, which allows script navigation of
   the elements of a DOM tree, excluding all other nodes in the DOM,
   such as text nodes. It is intended to provide a more convenient
   alternative to existing DOM navigation interfaces, with a low
   implementation footprint. Comments are welcome through 3 April.
