What was a question of justice was to get the "new" scripts into the
XML standard.  Implementation of it by any particular system is a local
question which should be answered according to local needs.  Adding
the new name characters avoids the "usable xor standard" dilemma; adding
the newline conventions avoids the "well-formed xor plaintext" dilemma.

People who do not need XML 1.1 need not worry about it until their business
partners start to send it.  Then they should find plenty of tools available.
