== 1.2 Conformance ==


    Implementations should support some version of XML. If they don't
support some version of XML responseXML must always be null. [XML]

Does it mean a conformant implementation could support NO version of XML ?

The version implied by the text is the version of XML. So "1.0" and
"1.1". There must be a reference to XML 1.1 specification in that

What is not clear is about support XML 1.0 or XML 1.0 with Namespaces
: what is the expected behavior if the filename send is
<?xml version="1.0"?>
which is a valid XML 1.0 file but not a valid XML 1.0 with Namespaces ?

Please clarify the behaviour regarding this

== 1.2.2. Terminology ==

lowercasing both strings (by mapping A-Z to a-z) they are identical.

I would prefer to read

There is a case-insensitive match of strings s1 and s2 if after
upercasing both strings (by mapping a-z to A-Z) they are identical.
s1 and s2 because there is less confusion with letter a and b
uppercasing because it is used latter in the spec for method
