   First Working Draft of the XML Binary Characterization Use Cases

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hello deviants,

I am happy to announce that the first public Working Draft of the XML 
Binary Characterization Use Cases[0] has been published. It's not 
complete as a number of use cases still need to be written, and there is 
still some editorial work to be done on the existing ones, but it's the 
first taste of what you'll get from this working group, and your first 
chance to provide feedback. Eventually, it'll turn into a WG Note.

As you may know, the task[1] of the XML Binary Characterization WG (or 
XBC WG for friends and family) is to gather "information that will help 
determine the nature of [the] use cases [for binary XML], characterizing 
the properties that XML provides as well as those that are required by 
the use cases, and establishing objective, shared measurements to help 
judge whether XML 1.x and alternate (binary) encodings provide the 
required properties."

This is to be a short-lived WG that will not produce Recommendations 
(but rather just WG Notes indicating its findings), so if you have 
feedback to provide you only have until circa the end of next March to 
give it. After that, either the WG will have failed in providing answers 
in time, or it will form an opinion on whether the W3C should produce a 
standard in that area or not. So give your feedback now! Even if it's 
just the first document in a series and it isn't yet complete, there is 
already meat to comment on (and it's not like xml-dev hasn't had 
opinions on the topic before). We await your feedback with expectant 
impatience (so long as it's not "booh evil" permaflame material ;).
