A28: syntax of markup declarations?

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.28 Should XML use the markup-declaration syntax described by ISO 8879
clauses 10-11, or should XML define a specialized document type and let
its markup declarations use the document-instance syntax, as proposed
by MGML?
