proposed text for binding framework

In part 1, 4.2
The binding framework does not require that every binding use the XML 1.0
[XML 1.0]  serialization as the "on the wire" representation of the XML
infoset; compressed, encrypted, fragmented representations and so on can
be used if appropriate. A binding, if using XML 1.0 serialization of the
XML infoset, MAY mandate that a particular character encoding or set of
encodings be used.

Add something like:

A binding, if using a XML serialization, must list the versions of XML
used to serialize the infoset, or if it delegates this to other means
(like media type description). To preserve interoperability, the list of
supported XML version should be exaustive.
