I think what this means in practice is that the Infoset
for better or worse is the only reasonable "standard mapping"
of an XML document to a tree. XSDL does define a specific
transform between an Infoset and a "PSVI"  and XSLT 2.0 takes
such a "PSVI" as an input -- so far so good. Do you really
want to _limit us_ to using XSDL as the only mechanism of
specifying a "PSVI" i.e. suppose someone writes a perfectly
good RELAXNG processor that emits a "PSVI", are you saying
that you want to disallow this?
