XML processor profiles

-> http://www.w3.org/XML/XProc/docs/xml-proc-profiles.html

Norm: I like it. It's a little confusing but that's not our fault.

Vojtech: It seems to me that we have six classes (A, B, B', P, V, and X) and then a list of which information items exist and which classes they apply to.
... But B and P are always used together so why can't we just merge them?
... Also, if you look at the profiles, there are no conflicts.

Norm: I think A, B, and B' are about what the profiles provide; P, V, and X are about the items provided by the underlying processor. I think it would be a category error to combine them.

Vojtech: Oh, ok.
... If someone wanted to introduce a different profile, maybe they'd need the distinction.

Alex: And it's a clear indication of where things could be simpler.
... If I had a particular processor and I wanted to see if I conformed, that would require merging states like V and P.

Norm: They things you have to provide to conform are enumerated in the sections above. For example, 2.2 says your underlying processor has to provide P and X.

Alex: None use V

Norm: No, we don't have a profile that requires DTD validation, which I think is the right thing.
... Paul, I know you asked some folks from XML Core to review it carefully, but I don't think that's happened yet.

Paul: That's right.

Vojtech: I asked about the references property, but I guess that's still unresolved.

Norm: No, under Attribute Information Item, I think that's resolved.

Vojtech: Oh, ok, I see. Yes.

Norm: Any other discussion?

I propose that we give the Core folks a week or so to review. If something significant comes up, we'll hold off on publication. Otherwise, we republish this as a new Last Call WD sometime early in March.

Norm: Any objections?

None heard.

Any other business?
