Wow.  Us crazy anarchists might like to see this crown abolished, and such
language standardized across the many documents describing the XML family
of standards.  

Every time I look up it seems like there's yet another name for something

Any chance of a large-scale clean-up?  It seems that names are foreign even
across W3C working groups.
