I think the commentator has a point about what tokenizers
must and might do.  But I'm not sure the note needs to be
or should be dropped.  Perhaps recast it?

   Note that "<" may be recognized as a terminal symbol
   either as a general comparison operator (production
   [60]) or as the start-tag open delimiter in a
   direct element constructor (production [94]).
   Since these two cannot appear in the same places,
   it is possible to treat these as different terminal 
   symbols distinguished by content; for the same reason,
   however, it is not necessary to distinguish them in
   this way.

Hmm.  Maybe Michael Dyck is correct.  I don't think we
need mind losing this note, and unless someone can 
think of a better way to make it say something true 
and either useful or interesting, we should perhaps 
drop it.
