XSchema review ends 9/23/98

This is just a reminder that the (almost) final review of sections 1-3 and 
appendixes A, B, and D of XSchema ends 9/23/98.  You can find the current spec 


Based on comments so far, it looks like we will make the following changes:

* Add an Enumeration element above EnumerationValue and (?) add Enumeration to 
the content model of XSchema.  This improves grouping of enumerations and allows 
for easier reuse.

* Eliminate Model from the content model of Model, but leave it in Choice and 
Seq.  There seems to be no good reason for directly nested Models.

* Add More and Doc to the content model of UnparsedEntity.  This matches the 
content model of Notation and was an oversight in the original design.

* Clarify that if an XSchema document does not use prefixes on any elements 
except More and Doc (and always uses XSC: for them), a non-namespace-aware 
processor can interpret the document.  This is possible because the document 
will match the XSchema DTD and because there are no GI collisions between 
XSchema and IBTWSH.

* Somehow resolve namespaces when referring to elements from Ref, AttGroup, and 
AttDef (see separate mail).

Any changes we make will be open for another week of review, but everything else 
will be frozen.
