Note that what got into the infoset was a purely arbitrary choice
by yours truly, with an eye to SAX, DOM (much diminished later) and
XPath.  There is nothing normative about the selections, and saying
"but it's in the infoset!" is no sort of reason why a parser ought
to support something.   Infoset conformance depends on documenting
what you in fact do support, neither more nor less.

The serialization of the XML Infoset is XML.
