It's a strange thing to call automatic :-) ! but I guess that you can
consider that when I am writing "A", I am expecting readers to
automatically understand that it's a "A"...

Yes. When I saw:

2.8 Prolog and Document Type Declaration

Change "1.0" everywhere to "1.1"

I was expecting the worse, and have been glad to read on:

4.3.4 Version Information in Entities [NEW]

If an entity (including the document entity) is not labeled with a
version number, it is treated as if labeled as version 1.0.

Thanks for the clarification.

Did you know it? Python has now a Relax NG (partial) implementation.
