Subject: Designating a normative schema file

First, good news - my engagement ended earlier than expected and I fly back
to Seattle tomorrow, so I will be able to make Thursday's telecon.

Second, RE the normative schema files discussed in (1) below: OASIS rules
are that we MUST declare only one schema file normative, i.e., if we publish
both RelaxNG and XSD, we must designate one as normative.

Our practice has been to make that the RelaxNG version.

Will, have to fly all day tomorrow but I will try to hook up with you
Thursday morning to go over the agenda for Thursday's call.

> We can figure out the packaging of it later on.

> Representation of Subject sets was discussed a bit on the call last

> Same time next week.  Drummond will not be in attendance next week

>   - Scott is going to look over the XSD schema and check for quality.
> He will either checkin any changes directly to SVN, or send them to Will
>   - Eran is going do a much more thorough editorial review of the spec
