i was wondering: in our hallway conversations at the TPAC, we assumed 
that AS1 and AS2 would have different media types anyway, which would 
make sense if the underlying metamodel (and thus the processing model) 
is completely different. in that case, we really do not need to spend 
any effort on superficial syntax alignment, and instead should place the 
AS1/AS2 mapping in the processing model section, so that it is clear how 
AS1 and AS2 documents relate on the (careful, dirty word ahead!) 
"infoset level".
