Dear Martin,

The W3C XML Schema Working Group has spent the last several months working
through the comments received from the public on the last-call draft of the
XML Schema specification.  We thank you for the comments you made on our
specification during our last-call comment period, and want to make sure you
know that all comments received during the last-call comment period have
been recorded in our last-call issues list
(http://www.w3.org/2000/05/12-xmlschema-lcissues).

Among other issues, you raised the point[1] registered as issue LC-189,
which suggests that XML Schema should define a more compact method of
defining enumerations of values.

WG discussed this issue at length in the comments list [2] and at the
Edinburgh face-to-face meeting. Many members of the WG were sympathetic to
your suggestion. But, the general consensus was against this change because
it impacts 'string' and 'list' datatype.

It would be helpful to us to know whether you are satisfied with the
decision taken by the WG on this issue, or wish your dissent from the WG's
decision to be recorded for consideration by the Director of the W3C.
