Subject: Re: [ubl-ndrsc] Rule: 96 Two Schema
** Reply to message from Chin Chee-Kai <firstname.lastname@example.org> on Wed, 16 Jul 2003 10:08:16 +0800 (SGT) There is no Pandora's Box here. People can ask for different varieties of Schema until they go blue in the face, but all that counts is what UBL decides to produce. It is quite normal for people to require Schemas without annotations for use on production systems. If UBL does not provide one, then everyone has to remove the annotations themselves, and they may get it wrong. The UBL team saves itself a bit of trouble, but the rest of the world has to suffer a distributed quality control problem. Although I understand the orthodoxy behind only wanting a single normative version of any deliverable, I strongly support UBL providing the two flavours of Schema.
