I don't know how to do that. I don't understand what you mean by
"intrinsic to the language" as distinct from what the specification
for the language says.

If you're proposing that it might be possible to write a specification
for a language with angle brackets such that well-formed documents
have the same interpretation as the current XML specification but
not-well-formed documents are interpreted in some new (loose in what's
consumed) way, I don't think anyone has said otherwise.

Several members of the task force have done work in this area.

The report already says that.
