           Version: 1.1 only
          Platform: PC

            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Datatypes: XSD Part 2
        AssignedTo: David_E3@VERIFONE.com

Discussions on the xml-dev mailing list have suggested that the use of QNames
can be problematic, especially when they become disassociated with the
documents thay were initially contained in (due to namespace prefix mappings
being lost).

One way to address this is to use James Clark notation qualified names (e.g.
{http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema}element ) rather than QNames that rely on

A James Clark notation qualified name suggests a type name of JCnQName.  Other
suggested names are Explicitly Qualified Name (EQName), and Canonically
Qualified Name (CQName).

The expectation is that this change won't make it into datatypes 1.1., but this
entry will formally record it as an input to datatypes 1.2.
