Subject: Informal attempt to summarize current activities

Just thinking aloud ... So ignore this if you want to make detached

Things that are decided

Decisions that don't affect the implementations are not listed here.

* <concur> is removed. This'll influence the implementation a lot.

Is there anything else?  Versioning doesn't affect them because
basically it's just a change of namespace URI.  Changes in tag names are
not the problem, too.

Hot topics

* identity constraint and datatypes

  probably we will adopt jjc's "proposal of the day (17 May)", although
  several syntactic details are still being cooked. But the core idea is
  pretty stable.

* constraint for duplicate/repeated attributes

  I guess this is the way to go -> "200105/msg00142.html". I think this
  is the sufficient condition to make RELAX NG regular, but is it true?

* order insignificance

  If we want the order insignificance, it may have a considerable impact
  on the implementations. But it may give us a mathematically cleaner
  language.  Which way do we want to go?  I think we need more thrust on
  this issue.
  What is the practical advantage of having order insignificant language?

And if my memory serves, I think there remains no substantial issue.
