Simon, why not dig up the SGML Grove and grove plans
to see what the subset is that exhaustively describes
XML. Take it to a group similar to the SML group,
compare notes and produce a before and after list
of what this exposes.
I feel terrible for John Cowan in this regard.
The infoSet has been a major chore. OTOH, if
the dev'rs are really unhappy with it (might
be time for a poll on that), craft an alternative.
I say use the grove because the SGMLers did an
exhaustive job, XML is a legal subset, so it
seems to me, contradict me if I am wrong, a
subset of the SGML grove is a good place to

I'd suggest that the Infoset's designers build for a wider XML-using
audience than the particular one they have envisioned, and then describe a
subset and perhaps the processing that takes information from XML syntax to
parser output. It'd be a lot more enlightening, if a lot more work.
