That last one is an entity-diffing issue, not an infoset-diffing issue. 

If you are annotating the data in an XML document, inline methods
such as the <html:ins> should work OK,  for basic things.

If you are annotating the markup, then external markers (links)
are better.  Then you get a nice three layered system: the data,
the markup, and the diffs.
