Hi all,

                        <gml:CompositeCurve gml:id="DDH123.curve" srsDimension="3" srsName="http://www.opengis.net/def/crs/EPSG/0/4939">
                                    <gml:description>The 'real-world' shape of the drill hole. This is calculated from the borehole survey data.</gml:description>
                                                <gml:LineString gml:id="DDH123.curve.segment.1" srsDimension="3" srsName="http://www.opengis.net/def/crs/EPSG/0/4939">
                                                            <gml:posList srsDimension="3" srsName="http://www.opengis.net/def/crs/EPSG/0/4939">
                                                                        -25.0 119.0 210
                                                                        -25.0 119.01 177

There are 3 places that you can encode srsName and srsDimension for a curved borehole shape - in gml:CompositeCurve, gml:LineString, and gml:posList.  Currently the GeoSciML v3.0 schematron enforces srsDimension and srsName in the top two levels in the hierarchy (ie, CompositeCurve and LineString), but not in posList.

I just would like to check in which elements srsDimension and srsName are actually required.  In two or all three elements?  In just the top element?  Is there a hard and fast encoding rule, or is there just a convention?
