The XSL Working Group discussed this issue on today's call.  Your point
appears to be well taken; the consensus of the group was that serializers
should indeed check the values of public identifiers for conformance with
the relevant production of the XML spec.  We expect to draft errata for
the relevant documents and approve corrections in due course.

We note for the record that checking the characters of the public identifier
is NOT the same as checking the public identifier for conformance to the
grammar for formal public identifiers in ISO 8879.  XML does not require
that public identifiers be formal public identifiers, and such checking
doesn't feel as if it belongs at the well-formedness level.
