The XML Core WG has reviewed this comment and decided not
to make any change to XML Base Second Edition with the
We're not sure to what proposed changes you refer. The
change from the earlier language in XML base to LEIRIs
is not a normative change. We are merely replacing the
description of allowed xml:base values with a reference
to LEIRIs which (by design) describe the very same thing.
If it is another change that concerns you, please explain.
We hope to transition XML Base to Recommendation within
the next few weeks. Please let us know if you accept
our disposition of this comment as soon as feasible.
If we have not heard by September 22, we will assume
you have no objection to our resolution.
