in general, yes.
i have some questions. (i have the note from 19980105 at the moment)
1. is the namespace region "urn:uuid:C2F41010-65B3-11d1-A29F-00AA00C14882/"
still the one to use?
2. is the <it>dt</it>:dt the attribute to use?
3. are the types in the "specific datatypes" sections the ones to use?
if so, i would prefer not to use types like "fixed.14.4", and would find a
"fixed" with parameters "magnitude" and "precision" (or whatever they might
4. the expansion conventions suggested in the namespace section
a. go beyond the namespace wd:
the region of the type attribute name has an implicit dynamic scope over
covers the attribute value. up until now, i've been fixing the default
attribute values and attribute regions independantly as the region of the
this alternative convention from the data-types note makes just as much
sense, but would
b. propose expansion rules for universal names which differ from the
this problem merely one of exposition, as there need be no literal
expansion, but it
might lead to confusion. in addition
c. use "name" rather than "ns" and leave the impression that the uri would contribute
to the process of locating additional information on the type
