| Second, I think the road map should include directions for future work.
| What's in there now is mostly finishing up on current work. What might we

Should I add a 4DOM section and note that DOM 3 support is in the

Henry Thompson has already done this for us. As far as I understand
his implementation can be used with any parser, so we may want to make
a SAX filter that can do schema validation based on his stuff. Does
anyone have opinions on this?

| I think Lars and Geir are manning this fort.
Geir Ove is probably not going to work much more on tmproc. At least
not in the near future. (He's got a commercial Java implementation to
worry about.) I'll probably have to add SAX 2.0 and XTM support at
some stage, but those holding their breaths waiting for this do so at
| XQL has finally awoken from its funk
Would be interesting to see an implementation based on DbDom.
| Experimental parser-level XInclude and XML:Base support maybe
I would say that this belongs in SAX filters. This is planned for
| A low-level Infoset API would be interesting
Personally I would prefer to see a nice tree-based XML API. My
personal opinion is that the DOM stinks and needs replacement. Sean
McGrath's xTree looks far better, in my opinion.
| Schematron implemented in Python rather than XSLT
| WebDAV client services
Maybe, though probably not in the XML-SIG package.
