So then we get
    +/- validation
    +/- PSVI  contributions
    +/- namespace
    +/- Blubbery
    +/- ids
    +/- xml:base
    +/- xml:include
    +/- xlink embed
= 256 flavours of XML systems even without addressing entity defaulting.

Thin uncordinated layers are the recipe for non-interoperability.
