The debate over the Infoset might be clarified and sharpened by considering the
following normative statement, to be added to the Infoset spec:

Whenever two XML textual constructs map into a single construct of the Infoset, an
XML processor must produce identical output for those textual constructs.

Personally I favor this, but not with any solid sense of conviction.  Simon St.
Laurent in particular has advanced some cogent arguments against it.
