Done, this is PE161.

Done, see 
Please check the new note in 4.2.2.

Done, this is PE162.  Please check if I did the right thing, I'm not 
sure I remembered correctly.

It turned out to be quite complicated, proposed resolution is now to do

Done, please check.

I created PE160 detailing the major changes we want: naming rules and 
version number.  Note that I ended up deleting the whole Appendix B and 
adding a new Appendix J "Suggestions for XML Names", following the lead 
of XML 1.1.  This Appendix is in fact exactly the same as XML 1.1 
Appendix I, except that

     "...derived from [XML-1.0] Appendix B."
     "...derived from Appendix B in previous editions of this 

Draft 5th Edition is at 

The status of this draft and that for 1.1 3rd Ed. are as follows:

- All published errata integrated.

- Outstanding PEs also integrated.  I will back out/modify as required 
if these PEs are finally not resolved as currently proposed.

- I still need to validate everything and check pubrules.

- I took a first stab at the Status sections, taking inspiration from 
the previous PERs and RECs.  Noteworthy:

    - Last time around we offered implementation reports.  Perhaps our 
plans will be different this time, at least for 1.0 where we want to 
have CR-like exit criteria?  What about 1.1?

    - I took the Patent Policy language from the 2006 Recs.  There is a 
difference between 1.0 and 1.1: the latter has this sentence "This 
document is governed by the 24 January 2002 CPP as amended by the W3C 
Patent Policy Transition Procedure.", which 1.0 doesn't have.  Is that 
kosher?  PP experts, please!
