The reviewer's words wrt this issue are as follows:

  "Update reference to [XML 1.0]"
  "Update reference to [XML 1.0] and to [XML Base]"

So, not much to work with.

I suggest we revise the bibliography entry for XML 1.0 in SML and
SML-IF as follows:

  Extensible Markup Language (XML) 1.0 (Fourth Edition), T. Bray,
  J. Paoli, C. M. Sperberg-McQueen, and E. Maler, Editors. World Wide
  Web Consortium, 10 February 1998, revised 16 August 2006. This
  edition of the XML 1.0 Recommendation
  (http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/REC-xml-20060816) was the one current at
  the time this document went to Candidate Recommendation.  The latest
  version of XML 1.0 is available at http://www.w3.org/TR/xml/.
  Implementations may follow the edition cited or any later
  edition(s); it is implementation-defined which.

I have queried the reviewer as to whether he would be happy with this.

If so, the parallel change wrt XML Base (SML-IF only) would be:

  XML Base, Jonathan Marsh, Editor. World Wide Web Consortium, 27 June
  2001. This edition of the XML Base Recommendation
  (http://www.w3.org/TR/2001/REC-xmlbase-20010627/) was the one
  current at the time this document went to Candidate
  Recommendation. The latest version of XML Base is available at
  http://www.w3.org/TR/xmlbase/.  Implementations may follow the
  edition cited or any later edition(s); it is implementation-defined
  which.

The W3C staff I discussed this with were happy with this suggested
resolution.
