    Hi there,

    Should we expect that the system characteristics generated by ovaldi pass schematron validation?  I think I am seeing this object:
       <registry_object xmlns="http://oval.mitre.org/XMLSchema/oval-definitions-5#windows" id="oval:gov.nist.usgcb.xpbj:100205" version="2">
          <hive>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE</hive>
          <key>Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer</key>
          <name>DisableLocalMachineRunOnce</name>
       </registry_object>

    Will produce this collected object:…
       <object flag="does not exist" id="oval:gov.nist.usgcb.xpbj:100205" version="2">
          <reference item_ref="295" />
       </object>

    and this Item…
       <registry_item xmlns="http://oval.mitre.org/XMLSchema/oval-system-characteristics-5#windows" id="295" status="does not exist">
          <hive>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE</hive>
          <key>Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer</key>
          <name status="does not exist">DisableLocalMachineRunOnce</name>
          <windows_view>32_bit</windows_view>
       </registry_item>

    Which results in this schematron error:
    ERROR|item 295 - a value for the name entity should only be supplied if the status attribute is 'exists'

    Thanks in advance,
    Bill L.
