The XML Protocal WG is satisfied that the comment was not applicable
to changing the CharMod spec.

The XML Protocol WG recognises that this comment is not applicable to
the current CharMod version.

However, if the statement were still in the CharMod draft, the comment
would still be applicable.  The XML Protocol WG consequently also
awaits the result of the TAG finding, particularly any finding on the
statement's applicability or inapplicability to existing and
in-progress specifications.
