Not really. The XML spec doesn't define any object model that the xml syntax
parses to, so there is nothing for it to define the serialisation of. The place
in the "XML family of specs" where an object model for which serialisation
could be defined was/is the DOM specs, but as you know, most of the parts of
that relevant to the web browser context are either incorporated into the html
spec or being refreshed as part of the same suite. In this case since one of
that family of specs is explicitly about serialising the DOM, that seems like
the natural place for it.
