XML Protocol issue 448 resolution


The XML Protocol Working Group has resolved issue 448 regarding 
extensibility and versioning in MTOM (now XOP) elements.

The xop:Include element allows extension attributes and child elements, 
as long as they may be safely ignored during processing. See the 
current Editors' Draft [1] for the exact wording the WG intends.

We hope that this resolves the issue satisfactorily; if you have any 
questions or comments, please direct them to xml-dist-app@w3.org.
