It depends how Blueberry is signaled. If they change the
XML declaration to say
<?xml version="1.0.1" ?>
or some such, then the processor has wiggle room. I have no
idea what the installed base of processors do in this case.
On the other hand, if they do something like
<?xml version="1.0" unicode="3.1.1" ?>
Then every XML processor in the world will correctly reject it.
Of course this second option is not viable if the W3C misguidedly
lets NEL into the S production. I must say it feels like a
really clean use-unicode-by-reference approach. -Tim
