   RE: [xml-dev] WD for Namespaces 1.1

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

If the change is made, only 3 is acceptable.  
Orphaning systems, content, and users is a 
bad policy.

The change should be complete or not at all. 
We've struggled long enough with half-hearted, 
half-done work in the name of minimalism.

The message I get from the discussion is that no-one wants a new version of
the core XML specs unless it fixes some of the significant problems with the
current specs. I don't agree with Richard Tobin's policy (only do the things
that can be done quickly), because it means there isn't enough benefit in
the new version to justify the pain of having multiple versions around.
