I forgot to update this proposal with the resolution of 447. I think the 
updated proposal should be along the lines:

<proposed version="1.1">
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. This 
root MIME part MUST be identified with a media type that is specific to 
the XOP encoding of the Original XML Infoset's media type, as described 
in 5. Identifying XOP Documents. This media type MAY specify which 
version of XML was used for the serialization of the XOP Infoset.

</proposed>

+1 : it's good to specify a default XML version.
