I must admit that I've only heard the other side of the argument,
i.e. from those who want to "gut" it into something that is more
easily understandable and implementable in v 1.0. I haven't followed
the list closely enough to have an opinion on the question of
subsetting vs conformance levels.
Could someone please back up a bit and put this into context for non-
specialists? Also, recall that the majority of people here don't have
access to the W3C mail archives ... Why would a "gutted" XPointer
spec be worse than no XPointer spec? And why is there still no
XPointer Recommendation if the current spec is worth fighting for?
