Here is a summary of where things stand:


- deprecation of text/xml and xml-external-parsed-entity (in current -00

- the addition of XPointer as fragment identifiers (in current -00

- addition of XML Base (in current -00 draft)

- transcoding proxies can detect +xml and either fix up the XML encoding
declaration, or leave it alone. Making well formed XML not well formed
considered harmful (not in -00 draft, but agreed)

tentative agreement

- seems therefore to be agreement that the xml encoding declaration and
the charset (if supplied) should match.


- charset. Still says optional but strongly recommended, TAG wants
optional and only supplied if correct. TAG wants default to be 'see xml
encoding declaration'. So, some media types could omit the parameter
entirely. However, attempt to register image/svg+xml without a charset
(backed up by pointing to TAG findings) met resistance. Still therefore
a conflict with TAG findings.

- xml 1.1 or 1.0 (soap 10 only as schema is 1.0 only)

unclear areas

- extent to which dispatching on media types really happens

- some on www-tag, moved to ietf-xml-mime

document publishing
is published draft-murata-kohn-lilley-xml-01.txt is created but we are
discussing what else it should say :) so its not published.
