I would think you can. The XML of the pipeline being in XML 1.1 or 1.0
just influences the XML parser.

This would not imply that the output of pipelines have to be XML 1.1.
Yes, this enables you to write pipelines that produce documents that
cannot be serialized faithfully in XML 1.0. But this is something you
already have even with pipeline using XML 1.0 (e.g. using XSLT 2.0 you
can produce an output that doesn't match the constraints of XML 1.0).
