I read the working draft XML Information Set and have one basic comment:

The document is interesting and probably very well done from a technical
point of view. But Im unclear as to exactly what the purpose of it is -
what contexts and applications is it meant to support - for what mechanism
will it be used. If it is just some theoretical bit of research than it is
probably best left to Computer Science departments - if it has some
practical applicability and was done in support of some functionality for
the web that can not be accomplished without it being there as supporting
infrastructure - than the document should clearly state what that is

I would be happy to address any responses this comment elicits
