I think there is potential confusion in the word 'catalog', because of the
SGML Open Catalog. Some XML software such as NXP supports such Catalogs,
although at present (I think) it is not formally part of XML.
If possible I would hope that 'XML Catalog' and xml-catalog (if they exist
at all) were reserved for this usage - otherwise there could be a lot of
A general point is the use of the XML-* prefix. Within XML itself it is
reserved (e.g. xml-space, xml-link) and I think we should avoid pre-empting
possible uses of XML-*. Of course 'XML-DEV' falls into the same trap... :-)
I'm assuming that this is not a request for Henry and me to set up another
listserv, because one is about our limit :-).
