I entirely agree with your opinion.  Liam's view is that of concern over
misuse where I am more concerned with functionality.  I believe XML
community can benefit from a guideline for proper use of PI as well as some
mechanism for registering PI target names.   Meanwhile we need to encourage
HTML browsers to recognize PI so that we do not lose this important feature
of XML.
