Because SGML does not allow (or at least does not like) the "--" construct, it has been forbidden by the XML grammar. Did you read this in the XML 1.0 Recommendation ? If so, just click the link surrounding "For compatibility" in the very text you have quoted: you will arrive at the definition of that term.
