There is no clear distinction in these two terms.

As TCP/IP and HTTP are no doubt infrastructure, XML and HTML are 
inbetween. As they are not crucial to communication on the lower level 
but deliver data representation on the application level.

Please clarify this. Where to draw a line? If this line is at the level 
of flash-player or adobe-viewer - there is no need for w3c 
recommendations here.
