Compatibility means that conforming XML 1.0 input does not change. Whether  
all non-conforming XML 1.0 input remains non-conforming is the question we  
have to address at some point I suppose, but it seems pretty clear that  
treating control characters the same way as HTML and XML 1.1 do is a win.
