That would tend to suggest that for the XML on The 
Web system, the Infoset specification is core and 
that XML 1.0 is a syntax mapping corresponding to 
a subset of SGML.

Sure it does.  The Infoset is ridiculously close to the XML surface;
it just abstracts away crap like "How many spaces between attributes?"
and "What kind of quotation mark?" and the like.  About the only
thing that disappears without a trace is the physical entity structure.
