I guess the Ethopians want to be conservative: to use an international standard
(Unicode 3.2) rather than some homemade encodings!

I think there is middle approach between John Cowan's "It is a question of justice"
approach and Michael Kay's "This is of marginal value compared to the costs" which
I certainly understand. That is for XML 1.1 to be undistruptive and slow enough 
that it can infiltrate slowly: I have followed XML 1.1 very closely, and I think it
is now undisruptive (and, in the single area that it disrupts, it is an improvement)
and can be introduced slowly.

There is no XML 2.0 project in the works: I guess the fastest one could happen
would be 2 years minimum.  So this clears up one area of value to some.
