I strongly endorce the comments of Elliotte Harold and James Abley that
this change can not be made under the guise of an editorial "edition".
It is a good change but you should change the version number.

Apart from requiring changes in XML parsers, many other specifciations make use
of the name production and by changing it inplace you are making
implementations of those systems non conformant. Xpath (1 and 2) for
example.

but repeated here for the record.
