I am wondering if it is best just to handle this as a normal 3rd edition to XML 1.0, just as routine maintenance. This 1.1 palava is scrupulosity. The world will not be flooded with documents in Cherokee. And I think all parser writers should support mapping NEL to XML whitespace ASAP. And, even though most of the Han characters are undoubtedly of peripheral utility, there are some that are important and useful (as Murata-san has pointed out). If I were voting, I'd say "XML 1.1: no; XML 1.0 3e: yes". And I would postdate it, to say that XML files using the new edition should not be distributed publically until 12 months time; a pre-announced introduction gives more time for updated parsers to nestle in every nook and cranny. > EBCDIC files begin with the EBCDIC for "<?xml". No NEL is involved. Yes, lets not panic. Similarly for the Chinese encoding of Unicode: it is very sensible for them to have this, and it can be handled by the current detection alogrithm fine.
