XML Grove Plan

I raised this issue a long time ago and I am delighted to see it is being considered for inclusion in XML. Having a grove plan gives developers a sanity checker for their parsers. Having a grove plan with a syntactic form that can be output from a parsers internal tree representation provides a mechanism for testing and comparing parsers. Having a grove plan allows apps to be developed that process post-parse data-structures as opposed to using an API. >From my perspective the importance of this merits normative inclusion in the spec. I am reminded of that well thumbed quintet of pages in 8879. Annex G of appendix B, attatchement 1. Otherwise known as ESIS - the starting point for many an SGML structure controlled application.
