Re: XSD: Proposed Goals, Rev. 3
* Simon St.Laurent | | I need to hear from people how they feel about that name [...] Calling the standard XSchema and a particular XSchema document for an XSD (XSchema Document) sounds good to me. | 9. XSD shall include mechanisms for extending the information included in | SDDs to support metadata. | | [...] | | 9 - added "to support metadata". Paul's description of possibly | dangerous extensions is convincing. I'm not sure "to support | metadata" is enough, but I'm not sure how better to phrase it. I | think prescribing extension limits is something that will have to be | done in the body of the document. I think you should keep the original wording: 9. XSD shall include mechanisms for extending the information included in SDDs. IMHO this is a very important part of the whole thing because it gives us a way to put constraint information in the document definition. Like Paul says, this can be abused, but I think the benefits are persuasive. If the bar attribute of the foo element can only contain numbers between 5 and 10 I want to keep that information in my document definition, and not buried in the 14 different scripts that work on these documents. | 14. XSD shall provide authoring support. I agree with John: this follows from 5. If the authoring support is supposed to be for document authors authoring documents described by the SDD then I think the wording should be clarified to say so. -- "These are, as I began, cumbersome ways / to kill a man.
