You can't change the definition of an XML Name like that and still
call it XML 1.0. Or is this what one gets for relying on the
definition of a Name to be fixed and using it throughout various
applications, only to wake up and find that the definition has
changed. Do I then put notes in user documentation that it only
supports XML Names from XML 1.0 4th edition or earlier?

It's a good change, switching from a whitelist to a blacklist for
codepoints, but call it what it is guys, and bump the version number.

Cheers,

James
