Re: linking, 80/20
In my befuddled weekend memory, I confused two issues. The idea expressed here was a draft on an XML-based language that did circulate with a new namespace -- which was declared an error in the production of that draft, and then changed back to the original. The issue I meant to bring up, in terms of XLink, is that SMIL 2.0 went to Rec without using XLink at all -- there's a "blessed" historical precedent. Contrary to the implied contract that XML-based Recs must use all of the previously published "generic" XML Recs. Note that the XHTML would love to use XLink if it solved our problems, some of which were put off for "further work", which has not been placed on the forseeable agenda of that group. After our returning-from-vacation chair climbs out from under the pile of email he has on this topic, we can get to work on publishing those documents I've been talking about.
