In a  committee written spec, different authors, editors, and reviewers 
may all have different "intent" for the same language. Indeed even a 
single author may have had different intent at different times. It's 
entirely possible that some working group members intended the spec to 
refer to the most current versions and some intended it to specifically 
refer to XML 1.0 and not subsequent versions.

This is yet another reason why normative test suites are really, really 
important for specifications of this nature.
