Sorry to intervene, Rich.

Are you sure the ID type change made it into 0.94?
Currently section 5.1.4 says:
"IDs are used to refer to something, but are unlikely to be used as keys.
As a result the length restriction is relaxed to 4096 characters. We
STRONGLY RECOMMEND these characters be chosen from the first 127 characters
of the Unicode character set, so that the length is no longer than 255
characters regardless of whether it is represented in Unicode, ASCII or a
Forgive me for butting in, but this section has always annoyed me!
  1. Don't you mean "no longer than 255 bytes"? Something 255 characters long is guaranteed to be 255 characters long!
  2. Even if you do mean 255 bytes, the statement is wrong, because in Unicode every character has a fixed length of 2 bytes! You probably mean UTF-8 instead of Unicode!
  3. Not all character encodings are guaranteed to make the ASCII characters 1 byte long - Unicode is an example and there are probably others
  4. What do you mean "represented as a byte[]"? Character encodings are all about how to interpreting bytes as characters, so a byte array on its own without defining the character encoding is meaningless! You probably mean ASCII or ISO-8859-1, where each character can be represented by a single byte.
By the way, I am looking forward to meeting everyone (as an observer) at the F2F!

My assumption was that 0.94 is the version which fixed various like you say
editor errors but the ID type remark came in *after* the release of 0.94.

This reflects "editor errors" that people brought up in the first week of
reviewing v0.93. The one that has been brought up since is that the
discussion of the ID type incorrectly states the limit is 255 characters.
The WSDL has also had a set of minor corrections and a diff will be
required to decipher the changes.

Can someone clarify what this is?  Is this an updated version of .94
containing changes agreed on from last Thursday's meeting?  Is it safe
to assume that change bars indicate a delta from April 4th?  I haven't
looked at the WSDL files yet ... do they differ?  If so how do I figure
out what has changed?  Are the details captured in a comment or do I
need to do a diff?
