The Last Call [1] review period will end 20 March 2000. Please
send review comments before that date to
www-xml-linking-comments@w3.org (archives available at [2]).

By moving to last call, the Working Group asserts that it
has met the following requirements :

 The objective of the XML Linking WG is to design advanced, scalable,
 and maintainable hyperlinking and addressing functionality for XML
 (XML 1.0 Recommendation). Such functionality includes the hyperlinking
 abilities of HTML, but extends them to include at least the following:
  - Linking elements in XML documents that allow arbitrary names
    and semantics
  - Linking elements in XML documents not co-located with any of
    the resources they associate
  - Allowing link authors to influence (if not completely control)
    the behavior of traversed links in basic ways 

Concerning XBase, this is a missing piece of the XML infrastructure
needed for XLink:

  XML Base proposes a syntax for providing the equivalent of HTML BASE
  functionality generically in XML documents by defining an XML attribute
  named xml:base.

The XML Linking WG expect it meets the requirement of a general purpose
base mechanism as defined by RFC 2396 [3]
