Hey, my stake is on the ground on this one: check out 
http://www.textuality.com/xml/xmlSW.html - the right answer is

      XML1.1
      - DTDs (& hence entities)
+namespaces
   + Infoset
  + xml:base
  ==========
      XML-SW

Which *nobody* will need to subset and *anybody* can build on (with the 
sole exception of the MathML people, who are stuck with XML 1.* forever 
because they want names for all their special characters).

However, it may be the case that not everyone will immediately say "hey 
you got it right Tim, argument over."  Hard though it may be to believe, 
people may disagree about what should go in XML-NG. -Tim
