I find it extremely helpful for documents such as this to list the 
changes since the previous 1.0 version of the specification, 
generally as an appendix. I suggest such an appendix be added. By my 
count, there are three major changes since 1.0:

IRIs are used instead of URIs.

The default namespace can be unset by using an xmlns="" attribute.

The prefix xmlns is by definition bound to the namespace name 
http://www.w3.org/2000/xmlns/.
