Description C. M. Sperberg-McQueen 2006-02-11 01:42:16 UTC
This issue was originally reported by Asir Vedamuthu, Mary Holstege.

In 2 cases, some of the annotations are lost.

  * The enumeration and pattern facets have a single {annotation}
    property, but they collapse multiple enumeration and pattern
    elements, each of which may have its own annotation.

  * The schema-as-a-whole component defines the {annotations}
    property by reference to the [children] of single schema element

On July 25 telcon agreed to add comments that resulted in R-163 to
this issue. See material from R-163 copied below:

The Schema for Schemas and the Rec should be consistent wrt where
annotations are allowed. The Schema for Schemas permits an annotation
on any element/attribute element, but the Rec is missing annotation
information for some schema component definitions.
