Here are the meeting notes from the 9/19 teleconference.  There will not be
a teleconference on 9/26.  The next teleconference will be on 10/3.  The
Semantic Model & schema extensibility will surely be discussed again. I will
send out the teleconference information on 9/30.  Let me know what you would
like on the agenda.

Discussion points:

1) PWG Semantic Model Issues
   1a) Addition of Document Object attributes:  (ISSUES 5 and 7 and general
         Attributes will be added.  Semantics of attributes will be
discussed on the IPP list and described in the Document Object document.  We
will reference that document from the Semantic Model document.
   1b) Addition of JobCopies, JobFinishings and JobFinishingsCol to the Job
Processing Attributes to separate job vs. document semantic of Copies,
Finishings and FinishingsCol.
   1c) Resolve collision of MediaSize attribute (PWG vs. UPnP semantics)
         Will rename UPnP's MediaSize to MediaSizeName and keep semantic
   1d) Check FSG definition of Page Override
          Semantic currently aligned.  Will remove issue and keep
   1e)  Is DocumentStateMessage needed (ISSUE6)
  1f) Should globalization be covered in the Semantic Model (ISSUE 9)
      Consensus is yes but level of detail was not agreed upon.  I will take
a stab at some globalization statements.

2) Element syntax for strings

   The syntax for keyword, user settable strings and automata
generated/localized strings.
      The keywords (e.g. JobStateReasons, Finishings) will be NMTOKEN.
(NOTE:  Further investigation indicates NMTOKEN and NMTOKENS should be used
only for attributes.  The token type is used for elements)  I will
investigate the appropriate types do discriminate the localized(invariant)
strings set by users and strings that are set by automata that can be

3) Mechanism for extending values for PWG keywords (i.e. type 2 and type 3
  Separate mailnote(Keyword Extension Mechanism for schema)  will be sent
out with the detail (further discussion required)
   Four proposals are under consideration 1)appinfo, 2)union, 3)link
4)Derived Schemas.  Current consensus is for solution 3.
