Greetings Paul, your response [1] does not appear in my personal mail log, 
I can only assume that I was over zealous deleting stuff when I returned 
from a month's vacation. My apologies.

Our comment was that we were unsure if some of the changes were within the 
process guidelines but accept your assurance that you are following the 
guidelines and consequently the XHTML 2 Working Group accepts your 


Regards, Roland

Thank you for your comments at
on the XML Base Second Edition PER.

The XML Core WG has reviewed this comment and decided not
to make any change to XML Base Second Edition with the
following explanation:

We're not sure to what proposed changes you refer.  The 
change from the earlier language in XML base to LEIRIs 
is not a normative change.  We are merely replacing the 
description of allowed xml:base values with a reference 
to LEIRIs which (by design) describe the very same thing. 

If it is another change that concerns you, please explain.

for previous reponses.

We hope to transition XML Base to Recommendation within
the next few weeks.  Please let us know if you accept
our disposition of this comment as soon as feasible.
If we have not heard by September 22, we will assume
you have no objection to our resolution.

Paul Grosso
for the XML Core WG
