Thanks for the progress. Here are my comments:

----

Under section 3.1, under href, second Note, the
latest draft deletes a sentence about sub resources.

I'm not sure why it is deleted. I could see changing
"For parse="xml" inclusions..." to "When the parse attribute
specifies XML processing...", but I'm not sure why the
whole sentence is deleted.

Regardless, if we delete that sentence, then I wonder how
the following sentence works given that it starts with
"While this does not prevent subresources of XML documents..."

I could use some help understanding what is happening here.

----

Under section 3.1, under parse, the last Note, there
is a "should not" that should be 2119-ed. (It looks
like this is a long standing oversight.)

----

Under section 3.1, under encoding, the XML source includes:

<att>encoding</att>attribute specifies how

which is missing a space.

----

In the DTD fragment just preceding the beginning of
section 3.1.1, the parse attribute's declared value
is given as NMTOKEN, but I think it should be CDATA.

----

Under 4.1 The Include Location, second para, it used to have:

  or it may be unable to access another part of the document
  using parse="xml" and an xpointer because of streamability
  concerns

andit now has:

  or it may be unable to access another part of the document
  as XML and an xpointer because of streamability
  concerns

which I don't think reads quite right.  Perhaps:

  or it may be unable to access another part of the document
  when parsing as XML and using an xpointer because of streamability
  concerns

----

Under 4.1.2 Using XInclude with Content Negotiation, there
is a "should" in the last paragraph.  I think it can just
be 2119-ed, but if not, then we should reword it to avoid
the "should" word.

----

Under 4.5 Included Items for other values of parse, the first
sentence starts:

  When parse is neither xml nor text, the the...

That needs to be changed; perhaps:

  When processing as neither XML nor text, the...

[Note also the removal of the extra "the".]

----

Under 4.5 Included Items for other values of parse,
the Note should be deleted.

----

In appendix C, I'm not sure we needed to change every
occurrence of parse="text" to parse="text/plain" since
the former is still valid, but I don't feel too strongly
about it.
