   RE: Are you sure the XML decl shouldnt be a PI ? :)

This is why like the SML idea.  My usual style of
designing is to wack off anything that causes
confusion.  Wacking off both PI and XML declaration
leaves me two less things to be confused about.

Even if UTF-16 support is thrown into SML, it is
fairly easy to differentiate UTF-8 and UTF-16 so
there is no need for XML declaration.  Lack of
version information prevents future feature creeping
problem as well.  Sort of masocistic approach to
engineering. <g>

WARNING: Don't try this at home.  You might end up
being an enuch.
