Hello, all.

I'm putting the finishing touches on the "emoticons spec". It is 
currently up as JEP 0038 [http://www.jabber.org/jeps/jep-0038.html], but 
  I have been updating and improving it at my website 

There is one very important thing I need to do, however. I need to make 
sure the Schema provided in the spec is correct. I in fact know it isn't 
on one point, which is how to make the "default" attribute in the 
<text/> elements default to "false" if not specified.

I also am looking for a way to say that at least one out of the group of 
<graphic/>, <sound/>, and <format/> must be used in an <icon/>. 
Currently I have all of them as optional and with a minOccur at "0", but 
in reality at least one should be present.

And I am trying to decide whether to use the name "type" for defining 
MIME types if the <graphic/> and <sound/> elements, or use the name 
"mime" as someone has suggested for consistency with Apache and Linux 

I am also looking to improve the Recomendations and Future sections with 
clearer descriptions. If anyone could give some suggestions, it would be 
much appreciated.

With these things done, the spec will be finalized and I'll put in the 
final draft of the JEP, ready for the upcoming Council to vote on.
