In response to this issue [1], the Working Group agreed to rework this
text to make it clear that we are talking about the version of XML, and
to clarify that this is due to unserializable constructs in the XML
itself, and not related to validity under a particular version of XML
Schema.  We'll assume you agree with this resolution if we don't hear
from you in 2 weeks.
