Joseph,

I think in section 4.3.3.3 of both [1] and [2] the XPointer expression
for selecting an element by an identifier while retaining comments
(last paragraph) is misspelled:

  #xpointer(id("ID"))

This is not allowed, since the quotation marks are not valid characters
for the fragment part of a URI according to RFC 2396. It should be 
changed into 

  #xpointer(id('ID'))

This applies also to section 4.3.3.2., 7th paragraph.
