I like it.  My only quibble:  The internal/external and
DTD-influenced/uninfluenced distinctions are independent.  I.e given

<?xml version='1.0' standalone='yes'?>
<!DOCTYPE foo [
<!ATTLIST foo baz CDATA 'banana'>

some conforming processors will fill in the attribute value and some

So we need

 MISI    Minimal Internal Subset Infoset ('missy')
 CISI    Complete Internal Subset Infoset ('sissy')
 MESI    Minimal External Subset Infoset ('messy')
 CESI    Complete External Subset Infoset ('sexy' :-)
 PSVI    Post Schema-Validation Infoset ('poxy' ::--))
