Okay, okay, it wasn't so yesterday, it is so today.

XQuery, XPath, and Data Model all use the same idea: an implementation
can use XML 1.0 rules or XML 1.1 rules for whitespace and names.
XQuery explicitly says that 1.1 implementations may wish to provide a
1.0 mode;  I'd like to see this strengthened to SHOULD, to agree with
the XML 1.1 Recommendation.

The Functions and Operators draft refers to XML 1.1 support as a feature,
but the datatypes are imported from XML Schema part 2, which does not
deal with XML 1.1 names or strings.

Micropayment advocates mistakenly believe that efficient allocation of
resources is the purpose of markets.  Efficiency is a byproduct of market
systems, not their goal.  The reasons markets work are not because users
have embraced efficiency but because markets are the best place to allow
users to maximize their preferences, and very often their preferences are
not for conservation of cheap resources.  --Clay Shirkey
