Norm makes good points.  Derek has made good points in his blogs. 
That is what makes me think the time has come to consider this. 
There is sufficient shared experience to do it just as there 
was when it was done to SGML.

It seems that is what experience teaches in every creative 
endeavour:  what to leave out.

I wonder if possible XML simplifications such as Norm Walsh was writing 
about [1] could speed up parsers?
If there were no DOCTYPE, no entities, no default or fixed attributes, 
no limitations on characters used, no default namespaces, etc.
