Yes, but we are not asking the W3C to recommend anything. SAX is not
recommended by any XML-specific body as far as I know, although we have
talked about whether OASIS might have a role.

The W3C clearly *approves* of PIs since it included them in XML1.0. We are
simply suggesting a use for them (if, indeed, a solution is to be found
through PIs). The more people who use this approach, the more acceptable
the PI concept becomes and the happier the proponents of PIs might be.
