My understanding is that Annex K was added to SGML in late 1997 for the specific purpose of making XML 1.0 a subset of SGML. This was after HTML had been deployed.

Also, I believe no IETF or W3C HTML spec that pretends HTML to be an application of SGML actually enables the NET-enabled start tags.

Am I mistaken?
