Hi:

Ditto these comments I also posted to the
<[log in to unmask]> feedback list.

Hi:

Forgot to add this point. There should be some mention (well, perhaps more
than that) in the document about preferred SRU XML QNames for various
namespaces:

    * SRU response
    * Diagnostics
    * Facets
    * Search Result Analysis
    * etc.

Preferably there should be one single section and/or table listing out
namespace URIs and preferred XML QNames.

Having a preferred or "known" XML QName makes it easier on implementers,
rather than working with application generated placeholders.

Also a mistake not to offer guidance, e.g. the facet example is using a
defaulted namespace but this fragment would typically be embedded within a
response which may itself be defaulted.

Less ambiguity all round if clear instructions on QNames are provided and
recommendation to use them. This also becomes important as one consider
alternate serializations.

Also is there anything to be said re "srw" and "sru"? Version 1.* is using
"srw", I think, whereas some newer docs (e.g. the ATOM example) are using
"sru". There should be guidance. And maybe some historical note about
naming?

As a precedent on XML Qname changing note that Adobe intially used "xap"
(and xap*") in their XMP architecture but now explicitly prefer "xmp" (and
"xmp*") in their spec. (Still, some of their own tools persist in using the
"xap*" forms.)

Cheers,

Tony
