Subject: Re: External ID draft
Message text written by Farrukh Najmi > Assembly of new documents and schemas based on core components is not within the scope of registry functionality. It is very much in the scope of specialized registry clients that are CC savy and can do the assembly and put the result back in the Registry if needed. I suspect a sophisticated CC editor that is an RR client would be the way to do this functionality. <<<<<<<<<<<< Correct - but, and its a big BUT - if the Registry has no way of supporting this functionality - then we have a hole in the spec's - and that is what I believe was raised at QR. We do not have to spec' how to do this - but we do have to spec' the mechanism that will allow implementers to do this. External ID is that mechanism. DW.
