   RE: [xml-dev] Symbol Grounding and Running Code: Is XML Really E xtensi

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I realize that but may not be getting exactly what you 
are saying.  Part of the problem is precisely, which 
combinations are meaningful and I would expect that 
to be down to the level of elements at least, although 
practically, we usually deal with namespaces as 
larger collections, typically, whole languages.  Yes, 
versions have to be managed.  That is an issue for the 
standard.  How do they handle versions now?  Different 
means from namespaces to version attributes, and so on.

Again, I'm not trying to work the problem of natural 
language symbol grounding, only artificial languages 
with bounded constraints, not open ended at the extremes.

because context matters. not just what's at the root or what's in the 

it's the same problem as delegated authentication. it just has more
