Convert P3P data schema to XML schema

The following is a proposal for future work on P3P submitted following the November 2002 Workshop on the Future of P3P


There is a simple 1:1 mapping between an XML schema version of the base data schema and the current mode of expression. This would make it a lot easier to handle for user agent implementers as many operations require the schema to be converted into a more standard format in any case. For example displaying the schema in a tree diagram or creating an array of all possible categories.


The best solution is to write a specification for how the base data schema can be expressed using XML schema notation, and then to write an xsl stylesheet which will convert the old schema into the new one.


Resources are available in the JRC (Giles Hogben) to achieve this objective.

Time Frame

A maximum estimated total time of 15 man days should cover this item, including comments and integration into spec.
