We can add Ira's observation to the agenda for this Wednesday, 12 Noon.
Dial In: 1-866-365-4406 
Passcode: 2635888# 

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
<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.
