Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] Commented: (OFFICE-2728) Public Comment:database components and MathML

    [ http://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/OFFICE-2728?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=21794#action_21794 ] 

Dennis Hamilton commented on OFFICE-2728:

-1 on the current resolution.

I despair that there is no semantics whatsoever for <db:forms>, <db:reports>, and their constituent <db:component>s and <db:component-collection> and how those constituents might be constrained to suit those purposes.  I am also curious how and when the db:as-template attribute is useable with the <math:math> case.

However, perhaps the commenter is simply derailed by the "which can", a clause that, in ISO normative language, merely expresses a possibility in what is essentially a circular definition at best.

I suggest that the following changes be made:

Replace the statements

The <db:component> element specifies a database component which can be either a form or a report.

A database component is either referenced using the xlink:href attribute or it is contained in a child <office:document> or <math:math> element.  If the component is contained in a element, the xlink:href attribute needs not exist.


When a child <office:document> or <math:math> element is present, that markup provides the component and the xlink:href attribute need not be provided. 

When the xlink:href attribute is provided, the component can be obtained or refreshed in accordance with the combined xlink:show="none" and xlink:actuate="onRequest" implementation-defined [XLink] behaviors..  Whether an already-present child element is replaced or is provided as information related to the [XLink]-behavior determination of the component is implementation-defined.
