Is anyone else concerned about the language in the latest XPointer Last Call
Working Draft that refers to XML Schema?
"If the document has an XML Schema [XMLSchema] PSVI,..."
I know what a PSVI is, and how to get one. What I don't know is what it
means for a document to "have" a PSVI, or how to determine if a document has
one, or which PSVI to use if it has more than one.
Remember that the xsi:schemalocation attribute is a "hint". There may be
other hints, I may have my own ideas about what XML Schema is appropriate,
or there may be no hints but a common understanding of what XML Schema I
should use (perhaps in the software of some vendors).
If XPointer is going to depend on XML Schema, it should do so in a
I can think of several ways to fix this:
1. Drop XMLSchema entirely from XPointer
2. Add an XMLSchema(...) XPointer Scheme
3. Make the schemalocation hint manditory to provide, and manditory to
dereference for Schema-Loading, WRT XPointer.
I'm worried that instead we will get
4. Do nothing, and hope it works itself out.
