John & I agree on everything except for the XML1.1 character repertoire, 
  and his even-handed view of syntax and infoset is admirable.  I feel I 
have to keep banging the syntax drum because if someone doesn't, there 
are a lot of people who seem to want to take the transparent-bits-on-the 
-wire away from me and hide them all behind a great big opaque API, 
because that's how Real Programmers Work.  Feh.  I'm probably 
excessively paranoid on this issue. -Tim
