Actually on further investigation, I don't believe that referencing dated specs
will solve the problem. even if you refer to the 4th (or earlier) edition
explicitly then its standard header section says that the there may be
normative corrections in the errata, and this has _already_ been done.  The 4th
edition errata

http://www.w3.org/XML/xml-V10-4e-errata

Already has published E09 which changes the Name production, so this is already
the offical XML syntax whether or not the 5th edition is published. By making
this change via the errata system, basically the intention of the XML core WG
is to remove choice and force all XML systems to switch (which is explicitly
the intent, following the lack of take-up of XML 1.1).
