XML Schema WG Resolution of comments

Thank you for your comments on W3C XML Schema [1] [2], sent last summer (sorry
to be so long in replying).  Both these comments are concerned with
less than satisfactory aspects of the rules for valid restrictions as
regards particles.  The WG agrees that the rules as they stand produce
unexpected and awkward results, however it has identified no way to
repair this within the existing framework.  It seems likely that the
entire approach to defining valid restriction will change, in a
backward compatible way, in a future version of XML Schema, and that
this will enable a fix to the problems you pointed out, but until then
we all just have to live with it.

Thank you for your input,
