Obviously I agree with this, and would push the point even further,
insisting as I do that there is no a priori data model of the syntax
formalized as XML 1.0. The Infoset is an incomplete (as its editor continues
to admit, I believe) abstraction derived from the syntactic possibilities
permitted in the XML Recommendation.
