I like this vision that is so coherent with the processing model of XML
through pipelines of XSLT transformations.

This is adding value without breaking anything!

The typed infoset could be adding elements and attributes in a specific
namespace in order to use the existing APIs and applications rather than
inventing new ones.

<myelement xmlns="http://example.org/ns/myns"/>

could then become something like:

<myelement xmlns="http://example.org/ns/myns" 
	xmlns:tis="http://w3.org/2001/typed-infoset"
	tis:simpleType="http://example.org/ns/myns/myinteger"
	tis:default-value="5"/>


Any tool (including a XSLT transformation) would then be able to
generate and use such an infoset...
