We'll be thin on the ground, take it up with the chair :-)
17:00:19 [DanC]
thin on the ground... yeah... if all the potential regrets turn into actual regrets, we'll have to be unanimous, among those on the phone, to adopt my new issue

Topic: Roll Call
17:06:38 [Roy]
DC: we haven't published anything in a while
17:06:53 [Roy]
DC: a working draft sort of thing
17:07:07 [dorchard]
possible regrets, may be on a plane
17:07:11 [Roy]
DC: regrets for next week
17:08:11 [Roy]
Vincent: Accept the minutes of 12 April telcon

Topic: New issue? Squatting on link relationship names, x-tokens, registries, and URI-based extensibility
17:09:16 [Roy]
17:09:37 [Roy]
DC: it would be great if they used a URI, but they don't
17:09:49 [Roy]
DC: unlear if this is a new issue or an old one
17:09:57 [Roy]
17:10:54 [Roy]
VQ: Can it be addressed in the context of one of the existing issues [missed which ones]
17:11:25 [Roy]
VQ: preferencce for issue 41
17:12:00 [Roy]
NM: 41 carries too much baggage already, perhaps 9 (no)
17:12:29 [Roy]
NW: perhaps if it is hard to find the issue, it deserves a new one
17:12:32 [DanC]
"The decision to identify XML namespaces with URIs was an architectural mistake that has caused much suffering for XML users and needless complexity for XML tools. "
17:13:00 [DanC]
ack danc
17:13:00 [Zakim]
DanC, you wanted to note
17:13:11 [Roy]
DC: it seems we have failed to convince at least one person
17:13:37 [Roy]
VQ: inclined to proceed with a new issue
17:13:41 [DanC]
issue makingNewTerms ...
17:13:49 [Roy]
RF: okay by me
17:13:59 [DanC]
issue linkRelationshipNames
17:14:15 [Roy]
DC: trying to think up a name
17:15:06 [Norm]
Interestingly Atom "gets this right" AFAICS. "foo" =>
17:15:37 [Roy]
NM: preamble about media types would indicate relationship to issue 9, but I guess that was just a lead in -- we should be clearer that this is about the short name issue
17:15:58 [Roy]
17:16:21 [Roy]
VQ: just link relationships, or broader?
17:16:38 [Roy]
NW: would prefer broader issue of short names
17:17:02 [Roy]
no dead typing
17:17:36 [DanC]
17:17:38 [DanC]
17:17:41 [Roy]
RF: standardized attribute names in content
17:17:56 [Roy]
RF: right, Values is better
17:18:56 [DanC]
17:19:11 [Roy]
RF: I meant attribute values in general, not just in XML syntax
17:19:26 [Roy]
17:19:41 [DanC]
works for me
17:20:02 [Norm]
Works for me
17:20:06 [Roy]
[no objections]
17:21:12 [Roy]
RESOLVED: new issue standardizedFieldValues-51
17:23:07 [Roy]
DC: does anyone else think they should use URIs?
17:23:41 [Roy]
RF: like the IANA-based registry used by Atom relationships
17:25:18 [Roy]
DC: what does it mean to add a relation name? Can they be a URI? How do you get an IANA name?
17:25:25 [Norm]
I suppose someone should define the mechanism for adding to the registry, writing an RFC maybe?
17:25:46 [Roy]
DC: suppose I just introduce a short name
17:26:11 [Roy]
NM: is it formally defined as a relative URI?
17:27:13 [Roy]
RF: it is formally defined as a suffix of the IANA base URI if the value is not already a URI
17:28:03 [Roy]
ACTION: DanC to introduce new issue standardizedFieldValues-51
17:28:59 [DanC]
(hmm... "standardized" is perhaps narrower than I'd like, but no matter)
17:28:59 [Roy]
VQ: shall we wait and see the feedback from the introduction before continuing?
17:29:03 [Roy]
17:29:33 [Roy]
Topic: Close issue xmlIDSemantics-32?
17:30:05 [Roy]
NW: CR was published, in the process of implementation reports
17:30:24 [Roy]
NW: inclined to continue this until PR
17:31:20 [Roy]
DC: looking at how this impacts other (existing) specs and what tests are needed
17:32:06 [Roy]
DC: trying to address concern about W3C having many individual specs that don't always work well together
17:32:48 [Roy]
DC: for example, Chris looked at this and provided examples where various specs (like CSS) should be updated/revised to reflect the change
17:34:24 [Roy]
NW: I don't think it would be appropriate for CSS to say anything about xml:id because the current [algorithm?] will pick up the new id automatically because it starts with the infoset
17:35:26 [Roy]
NM: I think both views of this are right, there is a case to be said that the infoset way is architecturally better
17:36:09 [Roy]
NM: OTOH, Dan is right as well and we need to provide [details missing]
17:36:32 [Roy]
NW: agrees in general
17:37:56 [Roy]
ACTION: Norm to raise the issue of synchronizing xml:id with CSS spec to Core WG
17:37:58 [Norm]
ACTION: NW to point out to the Core WG that it would be good to get the CSS working group to buy into xml:id
17:38:42 [DanC]
(the corresponding concern applies to xpath etc.)
17:38:53 [Roy]
VQ: I guess we can conclude that we should not close the issue? Do we agree?
17:40:08 [Roy]
DC: yes, but would like to hear from other TAG members
17:40:46 [Roy]
NW: Xpath 2 has cupport for xml:id construction, Xpath 1 can support it providing that it starts with an infoset
17:41:20 [Roy]
DC: surprised, so that means something that used to conform will no longer conform?
17:41:40 [Roy]
NW: both still conform
17:41:54 [Zakim]
17:41:57 [Zakim]
17:44:17 [Roy]
[technical discussion of XML processing continues by NW, NM, DC]
17:46:43 [Roy]
17:46:47 [Roy]
17:51:00 [Roy]
VQ: let's get back to the specific issue at hand
17:51:11 [DanC]
( )
17:51:46 [Roy]
DC: I would like for this section C to have a test case prior to going into effect
17:52:09 [Roy]
NW: would like Dan to send mail to public-xml to that effect
17:54:05 [Roy]
NW: I don't know how to construct a test for CSS, but the introduction of xml:id does not change historical documents and its presence will be ignored by parsers ignorant of xml:id. The CSS spec doesn't need to say anything about that.
17:55:30 [Roy]
VQ: suggest revisiting this after Norm completes action ... is there any other spec beyond CSS that are impacted?
17:55:37 [Roy]
DC: six specs are listed
17:56:11 [Roy]
VQ: let's move on
17:56:24 [Roy]
Topic: Review of XRI documents
17:56:52 [Roy]
VQ; Henry is not here, but can Ed provide his feedback?
17:57:20 [Roy]
Ed: I sent HT some feedback this morning but haven't heard back yet
17:57:37 [Roy]
Ed: (my delay)
17:57:59 [Roy]
VQ: we need to reply to the WG by the end of this month
17:58:17 [Roy]
VQ: and work on a longer document
17:59:19 [Roy]
Ed: HT is working on the longer document ... after feedback, will have a better idea how to proceed toward sending comments to WG
18:00:00 [Roy]
VQ: should we prepare something specific for the XRI team?
18:00:20 [Roy]
Ed: yes, they deserve a direct feedback as opposed to a general reference
18:00:54 [Roy]
RF: agree on direct response (as well as later general document)
18:01:18 [Roy]
VQ: running out of time, do we have time to make a TAG decision?
18:02:10 [Roy]
DC: we already have general feedback in the form of the webarch doc
18:04:38 [Roy]
DO: we need to take a look at the examples given and explain how we can solve those problems using URI, HTTP, etc.
18:05:25 [DanC]
q+ to propose: 1. XRI follows the pattern of an administrative hierarchy of delegation ending with a path, 2. http/dns handle that case, and is ubiquitously deployed 3. new URI schemes should not be introduced when existing schemes handle them 4. ergo XRI should not be introduced.
18:05:40 [Roy]
DO: on my blog, I got comments about change of ownership of a domain and broke it down into examples
18:05:56 [Vincent]
ack DanC
18:05:56 [Zakim]
DanC, you wanted to propose: 1. XRI follows the pattern of an administrative hierarchy of delegation ending with a path, 2. http/dns handle that case, and is ubiquitously deployed
18:05:59 [Zakim]
... 3. new URI schemes should not be introduced when existing schemes handle them 4. ergo XRI should not be introduced.
18:06:00 [Roy]
DO: that show how the points can be responded to
18:06:27 [dorchard]
18:06:40 [Vincent]
ack dorchard
18:07:03 [Roy]
DC: wonder what parts of the argument would fail to convince
18:07:05 [DanC]
DO: what's not established is "http/dns handle that case"
18:08:39 [Roy]
DO: they wrote a document that shows (in their mind) why 2) is not the case. What we need to do is come up with examples that show an alternative interpretation/solution to the examples they provided in the documents.
18:08:57 [Roy]
DC: did their writing convince you?
18:09:17 [Roy]
DO: it did give me pause to wonder about the two scenarios already mentioned
18:10:02 [Roy]
Ed: most cases of domain change can be handled by redirects
18:10:46 [DanC]
dorchard, did you mail something to www-tag on this item?
18:11:36 [Roy]
NM: is it obvious to people on this call that redirect is something that we can point to for longevity of URIs?
18:11:57 [Zakim]
- +1.804.740.aaaa
18:12:02 [Roy]
DC: yes, one of the many reasons why HTTP is better for this type of thing
18:12:37 [Zakim]
+ +1.804.740.aabb
18:12:53 [Roy]
DC: I am willing to try to make that case (am writing a related article)
18:13:08 [dorchard]
18:13:46 [Roy]
VQ: can you do that such that we have something to approve next week?
18:13:52 [DanC]

18:15:08 [DanC]
ACTION DanC: elaborate on "http/dns handle the case of an administrative hierarchy followed by a path"
18:15:09 [Roy]
DO: above are links to related blog entries
18:16:23 [Roy]
Ed: we should be able to have enough material to reply next week
18:16:37 [Roy]

18:16:48 [Roy]
Topic: Review of Binary XML documents
18:17:59 [DanC]
sounds like ed's action continues
18:18:11 [Roy]
Ed: I have this afternoon set aside for this
18:19:04 [Roy]
Ed: should it be in finding form or just an email?
18:19:27 [Roy]
NM: perhaps less formality is desired for a response to a WG
18:19:31 [Roy]
Ed: agree
18:19:52 [Roy]
Topic: Reviewing WS-Addressing Core and SOAP Binding
18:20:43 [Roy]
18:21:35 [Roy]
DC: endPointRefs-47
18:21:38 [DanC]
18:22:04 [Roy]
DC: suppose we just withdrew this from our list?
18:22:43 [Ed]
Ed has joined #tagmem
18:23:33 [Roy]
NM: what about the general concern that they are using something other than URIs for general identity?
18:25:34 [Roy]
NM: what WSA did was remove the distinction that indicated a parameter was being used for identity, but they didn't remove the mechanism itself. Some people still use that feature for the purpose of identification.
18:26:19 [DanC]
q+ to note my struggles reviewing WS-addressing... can anybody sketch a test scenario? how can I tell if a hunk of software is doing ws-addressing right or not?
18:27:06 [Roy]
DC: similar to cookies in that WSA does not prevent the use of those fields for the sake of passing identifying data
18:27:23 [Roy]
DC: but not all such fields are used in that way
18:27:58 [DanC]
s/DC: similar/DO: similar/
18:28:05 [DanC]
s/DC: but/DO: but/
18:28:18 [DanC]
(hmm... [[ WS-Addressing is conformant to the SOAP 1.2 [SOAP 1.2 Part 1: Messaging Framework] processing model ...]] )
18:29:42 [Roy]
NM: I think these questions are still present, and though not directly tied to this issue it may be our last chance to deal with non-URI addressing
18:29:50 [Roy]
VQ: out of time
