Subject: Re: [relax-ng] What about XML 1.1?

I proposed to allow XML 1.1 in ISO DSDL in the last SC34/WG1 meeting.  
Here is the result of the meeting.


> WG1 requests editors of all parts of ISO/IEC 19757 to review what 
> changes would be required to accept the extensions to naming rules, etc, 
> provided by versions 1.1 of XML and XML Namespaces and to submit PDAMs

WG1 also finds that an XML document using XML-1.1-but-not-XML-1.0 name characters 
can never be valid against a RELAX NG schema.  This is because the RELAX NG 
spec defines local names as

	"a string representing the local name; this string matches the NCName 
	production of [XML Namespaces]"

Without publishing a new version of RELAX NG (and chaning existing implementations), 
ISO/IEC cannot change this sentence.

I propose that this TC address the XML 1.1 issue when a future version of RELAX NG 
is created.  I believe that this cannot be addressed by an erratum.
