The only backwards incompatibility in XML 1.1 is the fact that we
don't allow the C1 control characters, right? And we only removed
them because for a brief period we allowed the C0 control characters,
right? But then we removed the C0 control characters, right?

So what happens if we erratum/second edition the 1.1 spec so that
it allows the C1 control characters?

Then 1.1 w/erratum or second edition is not backwards compatible with
itself but is backwards compatible with XML 1.0, right?

Worth thinking about? I dunno. Maybe I'm forgetting something else.

                                        Be seeing you,
                                          norm
