Subject: Re: [emergency] RE: Update: Re: [emergency] FW: IPAWS Profile Discrepancy

Thanks Jacob,

I'll be out from under my current workload by next weekend, and have 
more time for delving into details. I'm not getting any better at 
multitasking as I get older, sad to say.

> The Public Review 01 and 02 documents for the IPAWS Profile do not state that an applicable Profile Schema is available nor required.  PR02 went out with a sample CAP 1.2 schema, which was not yet a published standard, reflecting the state of 1.2 at that time, in order to illustrate the Profile's change from CAP 1.1 to 1.2 as the base.  Ideally 1.2 would have already been approved and the profile/cart wouldn't have come before the 1.2/horse.  Unfortunately thats the situation we're in and if this caused any confusion it's regrettable.  The joys of being an early adopter...
> In section 1.3 Terminology, I don't think the definition of Profile needs to be updated today as its pretty clear.  Its a generic description of a Profile, which may or may not, have its own schema.  If there was a schema created, then this definition illustrates how it should relate to the original, but doesn't state that one has been created officially for this particular profile.  There is the option of someone creating their own unofficial schema that incorporates some of the profile's restrictions as long as it follows these guidelines.  As more profiles are created, this definition could certainly be revisited.
> The key section is 3.2 Conformance which says a profile message must be valid according to CAP 1.2 and the additional requirements in Section 2 of the Profile.
