Description John Snelson 2011-03-01 00:26:42 UTC
The Data Model spec describes the creation of XDM nodes from an InfoSet, and from a PSVI. It also says that they may be created from other unspecified information.

I believe we should make it an implementation-defined feature how the XDM nodes are created and from what information.
Comment 1 Norman Walsh 2011-05-31 15:42:07 UTC
I changed the second paragraph after the bulleted list in section 3 to address this bug:

<p>An instance of the data model can also be constructed directly
through application APIs, or from non-XML sources such as relational
tables in a database.
Data model construction from sources other than
an Infoset or PSVI is implementation-defined.
Regardless of how an instance of the data model
is constructed, every node and atomic value in the data model must
have a typed-value that is consistent with its type.</p>

This should probably be mentioned in "7 Conformance" in the Data Model document.
