More importantly the question we need to ask ourselves is what the actual
gain would be. As I understand the biggest hurdle in the way of XML 1.1
adoption has to do with the new characters in things like element names
which impacts other specifications such as XML Schemas. Fixing 1.1 to make
it backwards compatible with 1.0 would not change this so I don't think it
would really do anybody much good.

Shrug. I suppose. Nevermind.
