Elliotte voices some valid concerns. I see no justification for making a change to line-ends merely to accommodate legacy operating systems. The time to speak up on this was four years ago. If IBM is unwilling to bring its own systems into the 21st century, it cannot expect the rest of the world to repunch their cards for them. Can someone explain why the problems of accommodating the enlarged set of code points in U3.x cannot be solved by moving the fence in the SGML Declaration for XML? A Technical Corrigendum to the 1.0 Spec could make clear that we should have worded it so that the permitted characters of XML are those non-control characters defined in Ux.y at any point in time (modulo whatever explicit exclusions). Or is there something worse going on here? ///Peter -- Bury me face down, "9" edge first.
