Description Kirk Wilson 2008-01-17 21:48:19 UTC
Documents referenced through EPR reference schemes may not be embedded in SML-IF documents because of their potential dynamic character.  The issue is how to handle documents that are not embedded in the SML-IF document.  Specifically, should a value of a <locator> element be used and how?  The issues need to be discussed in the EPR Note.

see also, which this bug was split off from, for some discussion that may be relevant.
Comment 2 Pratul Dublish 2008-04-02 18:38:56 UTC
Decided in F2F on 4/2 

RESOLUTION: Change conformance criteria from
"A set of XML documents is a conforming SML model if ..."

to read "A model is a conforming SML model ..."

Ignore Comment #2 - it was for a different bug

resolution in conf call (5/1/08): mark needsAgreement
Comment 5 C. M. Sperberg-McQueen 2009-01-08 20:01:24 UTC
We discussed this issue during the call of 8 January 2009.

Kirk Wilson suggested that the EPR Note should simply say that if
EPR references are used in locators for non-embedded documents in an
SML-IF package, then the same issues arise as when EPRs are used as a
reference scheme -- that is to say, it's complicated and error prone,
and those who do it need to make sure they know what they're doing.

KW noted that the draft text of the EPR Note already says this.

Those on the call agreed that this proposal suffices as a resolution
of the issue, and that the bug should be marked as FIXED.
