So how would *you* define something like SOAP?  In BNF?  Some specs
(SMIL was one I think) did this and then found that it wasn't quite
the same as XML.  Using everyday terms like "element" and "attribute"?
The infoset is just a standard terminology for that.  Using your own
data model like XPath?  You could just as well say that XSLT doesn't
imply XML syntax, it can use anything that produces an XPath data
