I've already replied to this - see:

You might also enjoy Rick Jelliffe's reply:

I have no objects to subsetting XML.  I do have objections to subsetting

Is the Infoset about XML 1.0+Namespaces, or is it about something else?
I'd much prefer that it be about XML 1.0+Namespaces, unless the W3C wants
to talk about Common XML.
