Subject: RE: Datatype section

The section
takes the approach that "if it's in XML, we must want it" whereas what we

XML is an implementation detail (an important one yes, but we need to start
from an implementation independent viewpoint.).


I hope it was clear that my comments were about the definition of concepts, not about the data formats.  But, it is correct that even comments about definitions are out of place until we have agreed what data types are needed.
