I suggest that (a) you take time to read and re-read the draft and try to work out a few examples (b) if, after careful re-reading, you feel something is unclearly (or incorrectly) drafted, mail xml-names-issues@w... . The use of 'after' in your query suggest that you have interpreted the draft differently from the editors and that possibly some re-wording could help. Since your concern is including in this mail - copied to xml-names-issues - you needn't resend it :-) (c) if you feel the design of the draft is wrong/unworkable on minor points again mail the editorial team. (d) if you wish to be any early implementer of the draft please make [modular] suggestions on this list. I suspect we shall benefit from separating out the various issues in the draft rather than trying to come up with a monolithic solution. P.  I am assuming this is a simple e-mail rather than a subscribed list. If not, could precise details be given [otherwise you may be sent may 'subscribe' messages]. Are the contents of these mails public? Otherwise you may get many hundred similar messages? I have copied this message to xml-names-issues to see what happens - please forgive the crossposting. P.
