I agree that it is a very well-written spec, although with a tad more
explanation in a few areas, James Clarke's excellent elucidation would not
have been required. But the writing quality is not the point.

Precisely. The matter could be addresed in an additional layer, or in
REC-xml-names. I'm neutral on that point. I only suggest modifying
REC-xml-names because I imagine it's the path of least effort.
