Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (OBIX-219) Encodings Example for children objects

Markus Jung created OBIX-219:

             Summary: Encodings Example for children objects
                 Key: OBIX-219
                 URL: https://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OBIX-219
             Project: OASIS Open Building Information Exchange (oBIX) TC
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: ENCODINGS Specification
    Affects Versions: ENCODINGS WD13
            Reporter: Markus Jung
            Assignee: Markus Jung
            Priority: Trivial


Encodings for OBIX: Common Encodings Version 1.0, Committee Specification Draft 02 from 19 December 2013 contains in Section 3.5 "Children" following example:

<list href="xyz">
  <bool val="false"/>
  <obj><int val="255"/></obj>

People reference this sample to demonstrate that it is valid to have in <list> children, which have nothing in common.  While this is indeed a valid statement, it is also pointless, as such applications abolish the additional semantics a <list> element has over <obj>, merely the ability to specify, that the children of a <list> have something in common via the "of" facet.

For this reason I kindly ask you either to replace <list> in the above example with something different, e.g. <abstime>, or to keep <list>, but make (explicit) use of its "of" facet.

Thanks in advance for your understanding.
