RE: Will XML Schema 1.1 get traction?
Correct. It's case by case which is why I say a difference that makes a difference. In FpML, depending on what they are enumerating and who they are sharing the instance with, every contract may be different, or it may be different for a state, or even internationally. This it seems to me makes a good case for using the newer version of the schema to get the constraints out of the program code and into the data specifically so they can be versioned and cited. In this case, they are negotiating different deals for different customers. Does the customer want to accentuate provable correctness IAW with legal rules or transparency? Or do they want to hide it (say shell game)? If a governing or oversight authority doesn't approve (and possibly shouldn't), then by all means make them the same. len -----Original Message----- From: John Cowan [mailto:email@example.com] On Behalf Of John Cowan Sent: Tuesday, August 14, 2012 11:02 AM To: Len Bullard Cc: Rick Jelliffe; Costello, Roger L.; firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: Will XML Schema 1.1 get traction?

That's fine if you are dealing with point-to-point communication. If you are a publisher, though, you have to make such decisions unilaterally, because efficiencies of scale require that you not offer separately negotiated contracts to each buyer (except perhaps in price, and most of the time not even in price). $EMPLOYER, for example, has a department concerned with the maintenance of code lists in the range of 100 to 100,000 code elements. Internal negotiation is done on who's responsible for smaller code lists, the code list department or the schema department (to which I belong). Consequently, it's common for schemas to contain obviously extensible but short code lists like "book, collection, anthology, monograph, article".
