i know it's after 15. june, but this is a simple editorial issue.

please consider rewording this sentence from the introduction.

 "An information item is an abstract representation of some part
  of an XML document: each information item has a set of
  associated named properties."

it might be clearer if one were to replace the word "representation"
with "description". while the former is true, it also has connotations
which run contrary to the purpose of the infoset. it tends to encompass
things like a literal xml serialization, which is exactly the concept
level which the infoset is supposed to transcend.
