Regarding default values: We have dropped them already. I unfortunately 
missed to remove them from the current schema so far, but the TC already 
agreed to do so.

Regarding replacing xsd:ID and xsd:IDREF with xsd:NCName: As James Clark 
pointed out, we then would not follow the recommendation in the xml:id 

So, taking it all together, we only have a choice to follow the 
recommendations in the xml:id specification, or to be compliant with the 
RNG Compatibility specification. Both together does not work.

Right now we are normatively referencing the xml:id specification and 
are following its recommendations for RNG. We are not (normatively or 
informative) referencing the RNG Compatibility specification.

Is what you request that we anyway break the recommendations of the 
xml-id specification, and instead make the schema compliant with the RNG 
Compatibility specification, which we are not referencing, and for which 
James Clark says that it might also be a good idea to revise it to be 
xml:id aware?

As users of RNG and xml:id I'm not glad that the xml-id specification 
and the RNG Compatibility specification are not compatible. Things would 
be much easier for us if they would be compatible. But we are the ODF 
TC. There is nothing we can change about this.

Best regards
