I remember you sent me your mapping last year.

Most important point indeed. We (the ASN.1 working group) were waiting until 
now, for XML Schemas were so changing from one version to the other that
we were bored to update our mapping!

I'll get back to you on this point.
Can you wait until mid-April (i.e., just after the meeting we'll dedicate
to this work)?
BTW I understand that what you need here is how to write ASN.1 values in
XML (but not the XML Schema -> ASN.1 mapping). Right?
