It has the merit that it allows identifiers to be spelled correctly
in the various languages that *require* ZWJ or ZWNJ or both; Persian
and several Indic languages come to mind.

If you meant simply that XML 1.1 is not widely adopted, and it is
therefore of little practical value to write documents in it, I
must sadly agree.
