>(i.e., with respect to what edition of XML their parsers implement).

Real life is more complicated! The Saxon schema validator isn't tied to any
particular XML parser (any SAX or StAX parser can be used, or on the .NET
platform, the Microsoft parser). Stuff that's defined in XML, like element and
attribute names, depends on the user's choice of parser. Stuff that's defined
in XML Schema, like the legitimate contents of an xs:NCName or the meaning of
\i and \c in regular expressions, depends on a switch to the schema processor
which is named xmlversion:1.0|1.1 and which looks as if it might have to accept
a third value xmlversion:1.0.5. I have no way of forcing the setting at the
parser level to be consistent with the setting at the schema processor level.
