I'm OK with this, it reflects its XML name "EncodingDecl". Have you also 
considered just "encoding"?

How about prologMisc? (XML calls the entire front-matter the "prolog" 
and this part of it "Misc", which where the name may have derived from)

The XML spec calls this "element". How about calling it "elements"?

ACK. I like these, nice and simple.

I strongly suggest that we don't use only caps for differentiating 
between the class and property names.

How about just "decl" for the property and "DeclarationOfXMLfile" for 
the class? See below for more:

This makes sense too. Even if DOM had an interface for these, it still 
belongs to the respective ContentAsXML blurb. This way we also bypass 
modeling XML into RDF.
