Subject: Final notes - resent from 16 October - on Spec 1.1 wd36

Since I've pulled out the other issues, I'll send this residual of two minor issues. This was sent to the list on 16 October but I've seen no response.


wd36 line 324  says the root abstraction is "Object" (note capitalization). This is used consistently in the XSD documentation. The text on 324-325 seems incorrect.

BUT the schema on line 265 defines the type as "Obj" with a global element "obj" (as usual).
Annotate in "conventions" if that's the way to write it. Prefer to not change schemas :-)

RECOMMEND add "Although the fundamental type in OBIX is "Obj", for readable text we write "Object".


The cardinality of the "is" attribute to Obj: line 344 says "...the ContractS this Object implements" (note plural "Contracts"). XSD line 202 implies 0..1 (typical attribute cardinality)."is" is of type "contract" and an attribute.

RECOMMEND changing line 344 to say "the Contract this Object implements"
