reserved xml: xxx ?
I think it's a basic requirement to be able to use the built-in xml:lang, xml:id, xml:base attributes. Note that XML already reserves element/attribute names starting with [Xx][Mm][Ll]. I would say it's nice feature that these built-in attribute names look different from normal attribute names. I see no awkwardness and no difficult for the learner.
Use full XML 1.0 (no longer micro?)
What you gain, simpler parse, no exceptions for the learner?
I.e. no exceptions, simplicity. A plus IMHO

If you want that, go use XML 1.0

Lose the exception for me James.

Too little gain for more awkwardness.
