re: What is W3C's official position on use of PI?

Perhaps we should start a W3C Should-People-Use-PIs Working Group, or even a PI Activity with several WGs (the PIs-In-Old-HTML-Browsers WG, the PIs-For-Stylesheets WG, etc.). Sorry -- Tim's reply is actually a bit more useful. This is really a question about people and their (varying) opinions, not about W3C policy. Here are the two ends of the spectrum: 1. PIs are probably too useful to drop altogether -- they allow you to do things like mark irregular revision boundaries, invent new declaration types, etc. 2. Level-three-browser compatibility is probably too important to drop altogether -- PIs are unlikely to show up in specs that might be used on HTML pages (Namespaces, RDF, Stylesheet linking, XHTML).
