It would be interesting to know whether items such as entities, Doctype declarations, CDATA sections, non-UTF encoding, comments, PIs, Text declarations, etc. have been banished from the syntax or only from what is exposed to the user from the parser, as these concepts are, IMO, fairly easily converted / filtered by a simple parser. If they have been banished from the syntax, existing ecommerce applications that find these constructs quite beneficial and simplifying to the applications exchanging data are likely to reject the approach.
