It seems to me that it's a good way to allow for the (slight)
possibility of an XML 1.2 in the future, without doing any harm
in the mean-time.  It also improves the fiction about any XML
processor being able to handle any XML document.

I wouldn't want to lose the proposed changes to name characters
because of lack of consensus over versioning, though.
