There was interim agreement on two things which I think we should
note, before moving on to the harder stuff

1) All serialized output from conformant processors *must* be
well-formed and namespace-well-formed *XML* [i.e. impl-defned whether
1.0 or 1.1];

2) We need to say something more about what conformant processors
*must* and *should* do wrt the information content of what flows
through.  I'm thinking in terms of something like this:

 Except where necessary to faithfully implement the semantics of a
 step, every step *must* carry the information in its input(s),
 options and parameters corresponding to the infoset properties

  [local name]
  [namespace name]
  [children]
  [attributes]
  [normalized value]
  [parent]
  [owner]
  [base URI]

 through unchanged to its output(s).

 The information corresponding to

  [prefix]
  [in-scope namespaces]
  [namespace attributes]
  [attribute type]

 *should* be carried over insofar as possible.
