RE: meta-specs (was RE: A few things I noticed about w3c's xml-sc hema)

Right.  I think that's what I was saying.  
RDDL is a language in the system, not the 
system.   Use of RDDL makes life easier 
but can't be required.  XLinks are a little 
lower in the food chain; above namespaces 
but below RDDL.  One could conceivably 
use a different application of XLinks 
and do the same thing.  Why, well who 
knows, but the levels are important to 
understand.   We can't legislate what 
a namespace URI resolves to because a 
namespace URI doesn't have to resolve. 

An XLink does, yes/no?
