And don't forget XLink as well.

I think the real point with the Infoset is not that it's a grove plan
of XML, but that it expresses a particular view of what are the
"really important" bits of the whole XML + Namespaces + Xfoo standards
collection, in a way which fits with the DOM and/or SAX that most
people are using to process this stuff. Issuing a new version of XML
with all the Xfoo standards added might not work, as it could quite
easily prevent XML being a subset of SGML.
