The spec appears to use the EBNF of the XML spec, but nowhere does it say so. 
Since that particular EBNF grammar has some relatively uncommon components,
such as differences and "#xnn" representations of Unicode characters, we should
at least reference it.  Or define it ourselves, if what we do is not really
identical.
