A8: INCLUDE/IGNORE marked sections?

On 9 October 1996, the ERB will vote to decide the following question.
A non-binding preliminary vote indicates the question needs further
discussion in the work group.

A.8 Should XML have INCLUDE and IGNORE marked sections or not?
(If this question is answered YES, it leads to a separate question, how
to achieve conditional inclusion in XML markup declarations.  This
related question is to be decided separately.)
