Subject: Re: [tm-pubsubj-comment] XTM questions

* Murray Altheim
| Two more things to note regarding scope. First, <scope> is a
| container for one *or more* topics, which act in combination. So,
|    <scope>
|      <topicRef xlink:href="#england"/>
|      <topicRef xlink:href="#eighteenth_century"/>
|    </scope>
| means "England" AND "18th Century", not OR. Think of them as
| coloured filters, additive.

Note that XTM 1.0 says both that whether it's AND or OR is undefined
(1, and that it is OR (3.3.1). 

The new specification says that it is AND, but so far that is only the
resolution proposed by the authors of the specification and the
committee hasn't settled the issue.
