Richard, would you clarify this point?  I saw that the production required
"1.0", but withou the requirement to produce an error, my own interpretation
would be that a processor could accept, say, "1.1" and proceed without an
error.  Was the idea that the production would be so definitive that
obviously a well-formedness error should be produced?

And I thank you all for that.

The rationale for the change was said to be XML 1.1, and personally I think
it should not have been published until 1.1 was published - they should have
been coordinated.  What if 1.1 never happens in the anticipated form?  What
of the change to 1.0 then?
