That's true, but the important thing is to not be *blinded* by those specifications. The API's and models that are part of those specifications are necessarily tied to XML syntax to a large degree. > But it seems to me that if you want to toss out all the flavors of > Infosets, the XML party is pretty much over for the vast majority > of users. Here's the point: if you have a plurality, then standardising one in a syntax specification doesn't buy you much. When I said "toss the infoset", I meant out of XML-SW. I'd say make XML-SW as close to a pure syntax specification as possible, and move other stuff out of the core. XML-SW - infoset - xml:space - xml:lang - xml:base is pretty close to syntax-only.
