You surely aren't trying to state that the W3C has ever endorsed 
Microsoft's use of 'XML sprinkles' or 'islands'? I can't find any
W3C NOTE on the subject, nor are there any 'agreements' regarding 
its use that I'm aware of. As such it remains as always a proprietary
Microsoft 'feature', not part of any W3C specification.
