This encourages me to offer the question to a wider audience.

(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 primary type "fixed" with parameters "magnitude" and "precision" (or whatever they might be) more useful. 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 the which covers the attribute value. up until now, i've been fixing the default region for attribute values and attribute regions independantly as the region of the element gi. this alternative convention from the data-types note makes just as much sense, but would need agreement. b. propose expansion rules for universal names which differ from the namespace wd. 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 xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
