Same for the first one IMO: we might want to tell a XML 1.1 processor to
turn XML 1.1 off if the application can't support it and/or if we want
to get the XML 1.0 linefeed processing and a read-only feature to say
whether the document was XML 1.1.

I am wondering if it could be usefull to separate these features from
the actual XML declaration and indicate if the XML document has actually
used XML 1.1 features.
