A few brief comments:

(1) You have editors listed for Second Edition, Third Edition (and presumably, First Edition) in the XML 1.1 Proposed Recommendation.  I would recommend clarifying that to say XML 1.0 First Edition, XML 1.0 Second Edition, XML 1.0 Third Edition, and XML 1.1 First Edition.

(2) In several places, particularly the example code, you use
<?xml version="1.0"

That should change to:
<?xml version="1.1"

(3) Is it at all possible for the xml:space attribute to require the processor remove whitespace?  For instance, whitespace is totally irrelevant in MathML, or almost totally irrelevant.  Nonetheless, this whitespace can have a serious impact on the Document Object Model.  SVG, in most elements, is the same way.

I'll have more commentary later, as I read the specification more this afternoon.

Very Respectfully Yours,
