C14N11 Issue and proposal: Clarify relationship of C14N11 to xml 1.1 and Xpath 2.0

Issue: It is not clear in the C14N11 specification [1] that it is  
only applicable to XML 1.0 and not XML 1.1 since it is not explicitly  

Undeclaration of namespace declarations in XML 1.1 can lead to  
unexpected processing errors in C14N11. Detailed example is provided  
in Konrad's slides.

Proposal: Add explicit statement to C14N11 to the abstract text and  
also the introduction text:

"C14N11 is only applicable to XML 1.0 and XPath 1.0 and is not  
applicable to XML 1.1 and XPath 2.0."

regards, Frederick
