I'd be happy with that, if we're reasonably certain that there are 
sufficient XML 1.1 parsers around nowadays that it won't prove a problem 
for implementations to require it.

I don't have a good enough impression of the current XML parser market 
to know whether we can assume that or not.

It would be good to include a note or something to illustrate to people 
how to do this (including the necessary XML declaration) as it's 
non-obvious.
