The features all XML systems (i.e. processors)
*must* support is very restrictive, and doesn't
at present even include GIs or element nesting.

*Should* support, well, who knows?  That's why
the Infoset doesn't pretend to be normative;
it's a library of names of features thought to
be generally useful.
