   What Is Type Augmentation and Should We Be Concerned? (WAS RE: [xml-dev

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

And it leads back to the question:  can a PSVI or TAI/ATI 
be reduced to a transform?   Reading the www-tag discussions, 
it seems that XML may become even more complicated and 
less flexible.   Type augmentation seems to be an application 
concern, not an XML Infoset concern.  The only way I know to 
keep those distinct is to regard augmentation as transformation.

I'm leery of InfoSet primacy.  I'm not sure why, but it feels 
like an abstraction becoming an instance of something else.

Yes, you're absolutely right - which makes my original question a bit 
ironic really!
