At its currently-most-intelligible, it can be found at:
It's still not as intelligible as one might like, unfortunately, but
it's a hell of lot more human-accessible than the formal code from
which it was prepared, which can be found at

I am merely a well-wisher, but that's at least as much because I'm
focused on other stuff (Topic Maps, for example) as because I wasn't
invited. I have huge respect for David Megginson, so I'm very
optimistic about the outcome. I gather that there is an open comment
period with respect to an Infoset draft (or perhaps a requirements
draft) that is either in progress or is about to occur, and I'm
frankly frustrated that I can't take the time to pay it the attention
that it so richly deserves. I can't imagine anything more vital and
fundamental to the longterm future of every aspect of XML than the
work of this particular committee.
