I haven't been able to pay as much attention to this list as I should (pressure
of real life intervening) and I must say that such of it as I have read has
been often been rather remote from my interests (eg jesuitical distinctions
between varieties of spaces between words)... *howsomever* I would like to go
on record as enthusiastically endorsing Preposition 28 -- that the same syntax
be used both for expressing and for defining XML  document structure. I think
Tim's arguments in favour are  both cogent and expedient. This would be a
decision that would make entirely clear what it is that XML has which
distinguishes it from both SGML and from HTML, at the same time as showing that
it has the strengths of both.
