I certainly don't want to delay things here, but I am a little unclear on 
how Infosets handle internal subsets in the first place.  I've read it a 
few times, and though it's somewhat difficult for me to figure out 
(presumably my fault), it's not clear to me that internal subsets are ever 
reflected in an infoset.  That being the case, I'm not clear that one can 
say that a serialization with a DTD is a worse serialization of a given 
infoset than one without.  I would be glad to be educated as to why the 
XML serialization of an Infoset with no DTD is unambiguously the XML 1.x 
with no internal subset.

If indeed there is an ambiguity, then I think the proposed resolution 
would not be acceptable.  We would need to explicitly say:  the 
serialization of RFC 3023 but with the restriction that an internal subset 
MUST NOT be present. 

I am also a little unclear as to whether the env:SENDER error is a SHOULD 
or a MUST in the case that an internal subset is erroneously received.  Am 
I off base in pursuing these concerns?
