I went from that, mixting of <tag> and <?tag?>
allow to get mixting of _stream of data_ and _stream of command_ .
I.e. ideology is to get two "layer", i even intend __mixted XPath__ like
And i'd like to get <!tag!> free for principle-other destination
(for future).

I have some doubt about transformation <![CDATA[...]]> into <?[CDATA[...]]?>
(maybe into some more simple, into <?cdata data=" "?> with counting of
open and close sign " ).

What's about compatibility, we can save previous variant (i.e. <!tag>)
for transitional period.

Say me, please, what is not incomprehensible and what is badly stated
in http://sql50.euro.ru/sql5.ppt
I will show this presentation in russian "mirror" committee for ISO,
and I would be very thankfull for all remarks.
