Kevin, how about this (slightly more) condensed version? (The revised
text stands within [square brackets]. You will notice an inserted
"attempt to" at the end, so as not to prejudge what will be achieved.)

"In keeping with the spirit of a minimalist design as specified in
[its]
Charter, the XML Protocol Working  Group does not have specific
requirements concerning [the support of] binary data
[or, more generally, the support of arbitrary non-XML data].
However, the XML Protocol Working Group recognizes that some
applications of the XML Protocol will require the exchange of
arbitrary
non-XML or binary data such as JPEG and PNG. To facilitate such
implementations, the XML Protocol Working Group may illustrate how
such
exchanges may be accomplished in a non-normative section of the XML
Protocol specification.  These illustrations will [attempt to]
leverage the
work already done in this area by the ebXML and RosettaNet groups."
