Michael, thanks a lot for the elaborate feedback on my questions on the
Adaptive method. Maybe it would be fine to leave details like this up to the
implementation. If this output method will mostly be utilized by
implementations, and not users, the examples I listed are most probably
"Kopfgeburten" (purely theoretical?), and as "error indicator" did not help me
to understand how the output could look like, the rule in question could be
simplified to:

  If any value cannot be output because doing so would cause a serialization
  error, the behavior is implementation-defined.

And a final thought... The complete method could be renamed to "trace" or
"debug", because "adaptive" initially indicated to me, and could indicate to
future users, that this method is a more flexible alternative to other
serialization methods (but I know this suggestion comes very late, so I should
better be quiet ;).
