I'm sorry I couldn't be on the call today.

Sure. It's partly to give an alternative to Anne's idea of an XML 5
parser, given that non-well-formed XML on the Web is relatively rare.

For us to do it, it's more a case of clarifying the scope of the XML
spec than saying things about non-XML -- e.g. saying, "if it's not XML
sure, you can turn it into XML, but you can't claim the *original* was
XML", and that sounds to me like being in the Core WG's mandate.
