XML infoset conformance -- new issue?

Having just read through the XML infoset CR [1], which is commendably brief 
and to-the-point, I note in particular the section 3 that sets out 
requirements for other specifications to be conformant to this spec.

I am thinking that, in redrafting the XML syntax of the RDF core, there may 
be value in making its relationship to XML infoset the primary definition 
(hence keeping the RDF specification away from being caught up standard XML 
syntax issues -- such as empty property elements).  A direct BNF for 
RDF/XML could also be included for informational purposes if still required.
