Subject: NEW ISSUE: Do we need appendix A (pseudo-schema)?
Title: Do we need appendix A (pseudo-schema)? Description: In the assembly spec, statements related to the structure of the scdl/componentType/constrainingType occur in: 1) Spec text (such as, 'this optional element of type xs:anyURI washes dishes'), 2) XML Schema in appendix B 3) XML Schema as a separate doc pointed at by the RDDL 4) pseudo-schema that is strewn throughout the spec 5) pseudo-schema in appendix A Any change to the syntax requires changes in 5 different places. Yes, pseudo-schemas are non-normative, so an error in pseudo-schema poses a lesser problem than an error in normative text. Nevertheless, we should aim for no errors. Pseudo-schema is meant mostly for readability (as in most cases XML Schema isn't) and therefore meant for consumption by human readers. We already have partial pseudo-schemas throughout the doc. Is it still necessary to have a consolidated pseudo-schema in appendix A? If not, we should get rid of it and eliminate a potential source of inconsistency/error. Proposal: none -Anish --
