Subject: Re: [emergency] CAP v1.2 schema(s) issue

My suggestion is to fix this error immediately, before it's approved as a CS. The stand-alone schema has precedence over the one printed in the spec; that doesn't mean you shouldn't fix it however. If the change is deemed substantive an errata can't be used to fix the error.

The CAP Public Review Draft 02 dated 29 September 2009 [0] contains a schema in section 3.4.  Call this the "schema in the document."  The document claims that Section 3 is normative, and there is no exception noted for the schema.
OASIS also provides that schema separately in [1] and [2].  Call each these identical schemata the "free-standing schema."
Unfortunately, the schema in the document is different from the free-standing schema.  In addition to a host of insignificant whitespace
(a) the types of the <altitude> and <ceiling> elements are different (xs:string in the free-standing schema vs. xs:decimalstring in the schema in the document; note that decimalstring is not part of the XML standard schema definition); and
(b) the <mimeType> element is optional in the schema in the document and required in the free-standing schema
So which schema is correct and/or normative, and will OASIS fix this problem when CAP v1.2 moves from Public Review Draft status to Standard status? 
We would like to use the free-standing schema (draft), but is this correct?
