Subject: [xliff-comment] XLIFF 1.2 Errata: Tool element

Hi all,

While I'm at it, I'll report this as well:

The <tool> element is defined as:
     Zero, one or more non-XLIFF elements.

The schema definition is:

<xsd:element name="tool">
  <xsd:complexType mixed="true">
      <xsd:any namespace="##any" processContents="strict" minOccurs="0"
    ... attributes ...

1) the mixed="true" attribute which doesn't belong there, unless the
specification definition is changed to mention this to be consistent
with other similar elements. I suggest removing the mixed attribute,
as this only requires a schema change.
2) the namespace="##any" attribute. This should be namespace="##other"
to be consistent with the rest of the specification...

This issue has been briefly raised before [1]. However, it is still an
unresolved issue, as the schema doesn't behave in accordance to the
specification. It will cause implementers pain in the future if not
mentioned in a 1.2 errata or fixed...
