Yes.  And RDF that statement since they are saying What XML Is. 
Then the next time this thread starts up, we'll ask  
the Web itself to answer authoritatively.

Currently, I would say that you can be compliant to XML 1.0, XML 1.0 plus 
namespace, or XML 1.0 plus namespaces and schema, but there is no one thing 
called XML, and there is no official statement whether these are all now 
conformance levels of XML, or perhaps one or more of these has been superceded.

Would you want the W3C to make an official statement about this?
