This is a formal response from the XML Core WG to your comments on the
Namespaces in XML 1.1 last call working draft.

If we haven't heard from you by the end of Monday December 9th, we
will assume for the purposes of our planned CR request that you have
no objection to our resolution.

We will add an appendix with plenty of examples to cover the possible

We're not sure what aligning it would amount to; presumably it would be
more appropriate to align XML 1.x system identifiers with the IRI spec
when it comes out.

As to the more serious problems, we have re-written the section as
described in our earlier message:
