Norm outlines the issue and summarizes Jeni's observed options
Henry: I think we leave it impl. defined.
Some discussion of how defaulted attributes fit in: probably covered by the spirit of the best efforts clause.
Proposal: Leave it implementation-defined.
<scribe> ACTION: Henry will respond to the commenter on comment 24: passing PSVIs between steps. [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2007/10/18-xproc-minutes.html#action01]
Norm reviews the points in Mike's message.
Point 1: accepted.
Point 2: changed validate-* to validate-with-*; accepted.
Point 3-6 are editorial.
Point 7: rejected, also made a separate issue
Point 8: discussion
Henry: I think we're pretty clear
that we're not answering this question.
... We're trying not to be too precise.
Henry: No, that doesn't work. An
XML document isn't an Infoset, the infoset is just a set of
... But maybe it's ok.
... Sure let's try this.
Norm: What about A.3?
Henry: Yes, that looks fine too.
Norm: Anyone unhappy with the editor's resolution of Mike's point 8?
Norm: Anyone unhappy with the editor's resolution of Mike's point 9?
That leaves some editorial clarifications, but I think we've covered the technical issues
Let's leave the "editorial" and "clarification" points to the editor unless they turn out not to be
Henry: I'm prepared to skip to
... I think he's right.
Norm: I don't think these apply to the things *inside* the elements in the step
Henry: So you meant "children" not "contains"? If so, you'll have to repeat it endlessly.
Henry: Can't we just say that these rules don't apply inside p:inline?
Some discussion about what constitutes a step.
Norm: I think children would work.
Henry: What about giving the
fifth and sixth bullets a parallel construction
... If any element in the XProc namespace other than p:inline, or any step, has text node children...
Norm: Sure, that would work for
... I think that resolves point 7.
Henry: I think replacing "within
its container" by "immediately contained by that steps
... Or if we've formally defined subpipline as the immediately contained steps, then "the last step in document order in the subpipeline"
Norm: I'm happy to attempt to clarify that.
Some of this is editorail.
Norm: I think we have clarified that select only selects elements or documents.
Henry: I've always said that
select needs the same namespace fixup we already
... We've already re-worded 4.2 so there isn't a double "each" anymore.
Norm: But that leaves "wrapped"
and an explicit pointer to 2.6.1
... The select question points to 5.2 and aon through to p:input where it's covered.
Henry: No, I don't think we want to make the reference to 2.6.1 explicit.
<scribe> ACTION: Norm to see if the commenter agree's we've addressed his concerns. [recorded in http://www.w3.org/2007/10/18-xproc-minutes.html#action02]
Henry: I think we can replace "aggregated" with "concatentated" here.
Norm: I'm willing to do that and see if it helps.
Henry: The prose is still a bit
... I think we should unpack it and make it more explicit.
Norm: We probably need to make the distinction between match and select more clear.
Henry: Not that you need to make the point about match only matching element or document nodes here. There's no free ride.
Norm: The WG's intent is clear
but the prose needs to be clearer.
... Should we make it an error to select a document node?
Norm: I think it can be a static error.
Henry: Is this just a case where a processor could detect it statically if it wanted to?
Norm: It could, but why not make it static?
Henry: A select option to a step may be computed, so it has to be a dynamic error.
Norm: But for select on our compound steps and for test on when, then they should be static errors.
Henry: Let's try that and see if there's any pushback.
Norm: Any objections?
