jonc: want to advise schema
authors and toolkit developers
... explicit use of nillable is key
... authors dependent upon language interpertation of empty/null values
... authors should specify nillable for nillable items
jonc: Pete Hendry cited use-case of complexType with attributes where minOccurs is difficult
toolkits should make sure that the developer can explicitly state minoccurs and nillable
various schema combinations may carry semantics which we can clarify
should have a truth table to describe behavior of minoccurs and nillable
tony will dicuss this with PaulB
<pauld> ACTION: ajulian to talk with Paul Biron on why nillable=true and minOccurs=0 is to be avoided [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2006/02/07-databinding-minutes.html#action02]
<trackbot> Sorry, couldn't find user - ajulian
<pauld> lines up these two new (related) issues
<pauld> will revisit this after some thought
Should we use this example to make this a testable assertion?
