Herve, I think this is an excellent start.  Some specific comments:

---------
Section 2.1:

<proposed>
The root MIME part is the root part of the package, and MUST be a 
serialization of the XOP Infoset using any W3C recommendation-level 
version of XML (e.g., [XML 1.0] or [XML 1.1]), as defined below, and MUST 
be identified with the [ TBD ] media type.
...
</proposed>

This implies there is one media type for all possible XML versions.  I 
suspect that's not a decision we've yet made, and it may not be the way we 
want to go.  Is it not possible that different media types will be used 
for different XML versions?

---------
Section 4.2

<proposed>
1. Parse the root part of the package as an XML document, according to the 
specification of any W3C recommendation-level version of XML (e.g., [XML 
1.0] or [XML 1.1]), to construct an XML Infoset (see [XML InfoSet]).
...
</proposed>

<proposed revision="noah">
1. Construct an infoset by parsing the root part of the package as an XML 
document.  The document MUST be parsed according to the level of the XML 
Recommendation identified by the XML declaration of that document; if no 
XML declaration is present, then the document MUST be parsed per {ref to 
the XML 1.0 recommendation)}.

</proposed>
