Sir, I have been task by the XML Schema Working Group (WG) to respond to
your comment  "XML Schema needs better support for semantics; in particular,
the ability to link to a repository of semantic information about a
particular object would be useful." submitted by you to the XML Schema
Comments list, Tuesday, 2 May 2000.  My response is as follows:

I researched your comment and I found that the WG discussed
Application-Specific Information and Constraint issues at the XML Schema WG
face-to-face session held 17-18 November 1999 in Reston, Virginia.  During
that discussion the 7 October 1999 W3C Cambridge Communiqué was pointed to
as a source of information relating to your comment.  Based upon my research
it is my opinion that this Communiqué addresses your comment.   The
Cambridge Communiqué is available on the WEB at
http://www.w3.org/TR/schema-arch . The 17-18 November 1999 meeting minutes
are available from the W3C site, but requires a user ID and password to
access the information. The WEB site for the meeting minutes is
Of course the XML Schema WG will review my response to you and has final
approval  authority concerning my answer.  Please feel free to contact me,
if required.
