In response to your email to the XML 1.1 CR recorded at
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-xml-blueberry-comments/2002Oct/0012.html
the XML Core WG generated, discussed, and resolved the follow issue:

Issue Stevenson-01:
do not support the new line character

Summary resolution: rejected

Response
--------
Adding NEL and LSEP as valid newline characters in XML 1.1 is only an issue
for parser writers, not authors. We are not changing the newline character,
we are adding two new ones. So this is not an backward incompatibility. This
enables users of IBM mainframes to produce well-formed XML.

========

Please let us know whether you accept our resolution of our comment,
or wish to have an objection formally recorded.  If we do not hear
from you within 10 days we will assume that you accept our response
(though we would prefer to hear from you in any case if practical).

Thank you for your interest in the XML 1.1.

Paul Grosso
for the XML Core WG
