If you can define "compatible with SGML" given the syntactical
variance caused by the use of various features, we might be somewhere
further along.

My real point is that we are *already* invoking features that are not
altogether widely supported in order to make the syntax of XML
slightly more pleasant. Different whitespace handling is just one
more...
