why is infoset important
I'd like to remind everyone to take the time to read the (fairly
short) XML Information Set Working Draft:

Infoset WD: http://www.w3.org/TR/xml-infoset
Comments:   mailto:www-xml-infoset-comments@w...
Archive:    http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-infoset-comments/

The W3C XML Information Set Working Group is working to establish a
common data model for XML-based specs and APIs; while the model itself
is abstract, it will be affect many other specs and APIs like the DOM,
XSL, XML Schemas, XPointer, and even SAX.

Here are two sample questions to whet your appetites:

1. Are comments and CDATA section boundaries optional or required
   information from an XML document?

2. Should the original prefixes be available during namespace

If you care about the answers to questions like these, then please
comment now (while the Infoset is in its early drafts) rather than
waiting until you see answers you might not like embedded in dozens of
other specs.  

Discussion on XML-Dev is, of course, welcome, but if you want to be
sure that your comments are considered by the WG, please at least
summarize them to the official address as well.

Thanks, and all the best,
