I'm reviewing all the PEs we currently have in one block.

PE 154 should be approved and put on countdown.  It's editorial.

PE 160 (full names), text for Section 2.3, should be approved.

PE 160, Appendix B, should be replaced by a reference to production
4 and possibly Appendix J rather than remaining completely blank.
That helps people who are following URLs fragment IDs that point to it.

PE 160, Appendix J, needs some heavy revision, which I propose in a
separate message.

PE 161 (LEIRIs) should be approved and put into countdown.

PE 162 (1.1 versions) should *not* be approved.  IMHO, the delicate
balance we have between XML 1.0 and XML 1.1 should be left entirely alone.

PE 163 (1.0 versions) should be approved with the addition of a + at the
end of production 26, so that we can go from version 1.9 to version 1.10
without a glitch.

PE 150 is currently in approved state, but should be revisited to refer
to BCP 47 rather than RFC 4646, since 4646bis is already far advanced
in the IETF WG.

Arise, you prisoners of Windows / Arise, you slaves of Redmond, Wash,
The day and hour soon are coming / When all the IT folks say "Gosh!"
It isn't from a clever lawsuit / That Windowsland will finally fall,
But thousands writing open source code / Like mice who nibble through a wall.
