           Summary: XML 1.0/1.0
           Product: XPath / XQuery / XSLFO / XSLT
           Version: Recommendation
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://www.w3.org/TR/xpath20/#parse-note-xml-version
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XPath

Xpath2 (and Xquery) says

An implementation's choice to support the [XML 1.0] and [XML Names], or [XML
1.1] and [XML Names 1.1] 

The [XML 1.0] links to the references appendix which in turn links to the
undated versions of the XML rec URI, so links to the "latest" version of XML
1.0.

If the currently proposed 5th edition of XML 1.0 is adopted, the Name
production in XML 1.0 will change to match that of XML 1.1. If that happens it
would appear to make an XPath processor that enforces the current XML 1.0 rules
non conformant. Is that the intention, or should the references section be
changed to refer to (say) the 4th edition using the fixed, dated URI.
