[Peter Murray-Rust:]

| 	- although there is no formal process, we have been informed
| several times of potential developments by the W3C which helped guide
| our activities. For example, JonB notified us of the change of
| caseSensistivity and also of the major revision in XSL. If we were
| doing something utterly foolish here I would expect that we would pick
| up some gentle hints.

I have very mixed feelings about this thread (which I don't have time
to follow in detail).  On the one hand, what you are engaged in here
is, strictly speaking, wasted motion; the XML WG will define the
standard for schemas, and the probability is high that it will use at
best just a little bit of what you come up with as input.  On the
other hand, some of the discussion here may turn out to be quite
useful.  I don't have a problem with seeing it continue as long as you
understand that very little of what you do may end up in the final

I'm a lot less bothered by the fact that this work is going on than I
am by the fear that the participants will be distracted from putting
any energy into XML/XSL browser implementations when the first XSL
draft becomes available next month.
