Right. It was not the intent to require content conformance to both -
content conforms to one or the other.

Sure. How about

 * When the content is not well-formed according to the version of XML
 used (either the XML 1.0 or XML 1.1 specifications [XML10] [XML11])

AvK> Doesn't XML-NS11 allow certain things from XML11 that are not in

Yes. Content that uses XML 1.0 has to be NSWF according to Namespaces in
XML and content that uses XML 1.1 has to be NSWF according to Namespaces
in XML 1.1.

Agreed that content which is NSWF is also WF; but maybe it makes the
point about WF more strongly to explicitly list it rather than to leave
it implicit.
