"The XML Information Set specification shall include a non-normative
formal model that allows for machine testing and verification of the
information set."

I couldn't figure out why the formal model would be non-normative. I
would think that a normative formal component would provide a more solid
foundation on which to build automated systems. The reasoning for making
it non-normative should be included in the infoset spec.
