If anyone thinks that an XML property set distinct from the ISO SGML Property
Set ought to exist, I most heartily urge him to put his money (and time, and blood,
and sweat) where his mouth is. "Take my job....please!"
As things stand, I have an imperfect-but-usable approximation that omits
many things irrecoverably.

I think the idea of creating a formalism for specifying subsets of the Infoset
is a very plausible one, and if the Infoset ever gets out the door I will
think about the problem.
