We can add Ira's observation to the agenda for this Wednesday, 12 Noon.
Dial In: 1-866-365-4406
I think that Harry will not be available for this week's concalls. So SC discussion may be a while off. However, the quoted message apperas to be in response to a proposal to extend W3C XML Schema to accomodate some problems found by the IETF XCON WG. I suggest that the first questions is to what extent do these problems apply to PWG Schema.
With respect to other WIMS WG topics:
a. Minutes: ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/wims/minutes/wims_051116.pdf
b. Abstracting the WIMS protocol spec.
However, if we do not have a reasonable attedance, there would be little sense in discussing these rather significant topics.

> Hi folks,
>> Topic for next WIMS telecon and next PWG Steering Committee telecon.
>>> [The context is describing constraints in schema for XML documents]
>> Below is a thought-provoking comment recently from Tim Bray (Textuality)
> about the misuse of W3C XML Schema in IETF specs where ISO Relax NG would
> be more appropriate.
>> Tim's _first_ sentence (not quoted below) was:
>> "My input: The proposal is an attempt to work around one of the many known
>> limitations of W3C XML Schema. It also seems to increase the complexity
> decrease the readability of your XML."
>> It's worth considering whether our PWG standard SM/1.0 printing schema and
> the new WIMS imaging system schema should be translated to Relax NG.
