Subject: Re: Important for POC Registry Implementors: Bug FixesinRegistryServices v0.8


I trimmed down the replyto since this is a RR and POC issue.

You misunderstood my proposal. I  was talking about classes in the information
model UML diagram and not XML schemas or DTDs. Note that the attributes in the
UML model map to attributes in the DTD for RS. There are no "."s in element
names or attribute names in the DTDs nor will there be in the future.

Hope that addresses your concern.
