Not for that one, but Henry pointed out that the nature of XML Schema
is currently listed as http://www.w3.org/2000/10/XMLSchema where
http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema would be more appropriate.

Uhm. I see "7. RDDL Attributes" in the ToC, but 
"7. Related Resources for RDDL" in the actual document.

Given that RDDL 1.0 has become widely deployed since we started this
excercise, I've been leading the TAG discussions away from any
particular syntax and towards a common model.

I'm in favor too, I think.
