In regard of:


... thank you for the invitation for comment:


(1) - the introduction associates HTML link instructions with PIs, 
but the introduction is non normative ... is there any normative 
section that describes how a user agent is to interpret the PI values 
or is that out of scope of this particular specification?  If the 
answer is "the same way as with HTML, then I believe there should be 
a normative statement saying so.  If the answer is "the semantics 
associated with the information expressed using this specification 
are out of scope of the specification", then explicitly stating that 
will prevent readers from making guesses.

(2) - external links are said to occur before associations specified 
by PIs ... but what is the interpretation of the order of the links? 
(or is that covered off in the answer to the first question?)

Thank you for all the work being done on this and other XML specifications!
