So now it doesn't sound like, in fact, you were "arguing
convincingly that the C1 control characters should be
excluded from XML 1.1."

Concentrating on this issue for a moment--which is the one
I had raised and the one asked in the CR request--then how 
do you come down on the question of whether we should:

a.  say that the presence of these characters (other than
    via an NCR) means the result is not well formed XML 1.1; or

b.  say that, since these characters are allowed (unescaped)
    in XML 1.0, the benefit of backward compatibility suggests
    we should continue to allow them in XML 1.1 (unescaped).
