This looks fine to me: (I haven't changed it, just got rid of the >)
--------------------------------
An XML document labelled as text/xml or application/xml might contain
namespace declarations, stylesheet-linking PIs, schema information,
or other declarations that might be used to suggest how the document
is to be processed. For example, a document might have the XHTML
namespace and a reference to a CSS stylesheet. Such document might
be handled by applications that would use this information to dispatch
to the appropriate processing.
--------------------------------

'Might' seems to address the current situation perfectly, adding the right
amount of contingency throughout.
