If the attribute we introduce was declared on the root element I could
see a benefit over XML 1.1 (potentially avoiding repetition on each
p:inline). Otherwise my inclination would also be to just rely on XML
1.1.

What would be the drawback of relying on XML 1.1? Are we worried about
XML 1.1 implementations not being available for some environments?
