What I plan to suggest is a 'derivative' XML standard that is considered
a 'compressed' or alternative form of the XML 1.0 standard, easily
convertable.

For some problem domains, you would allow/specify one or the other or
both.  No real threat to anyone, just an optimization where it makes
sense, in a standard and reusable way.  This is what XML is all about,
IMHO.
