I am planning to include the complete text of the second edition of the
XML 1.0 specification in the second edition of my book, the XML Bible.
which is allowed by the document use policy and your copyright FAQ.

There are a few errata to this spec. It would seem to me to be
worthwhile to make the changes to the spec indicated by the errata.
However, this does not seem to be allowed by your current policy. If
possible I'd like to get permission to do so, or at least request that
this common use-case be addressed in the copyright FAQ. i.e. "Is it
permissible to publish a version of a W3C specification in which the
officially approved errata have been incorporated, prior to the W3C
publishing such an edition?" 

However, without specific approval, I am just going to go ahead and
publish the spec as written, and then add the errata as a spearate
document as they are written. which does seem to be allowed by the
current guidelines.
