In fact the Infoset has no rules about what is a valid name, either
directly or by reference.  It's true that you can't construct an
infoset with names that contain non-XML-1.0-name characters by parsing
a 1.0 document, but the section "Synthetic Infosets" makes it clear
that there are other ways to construct an infoset than by parsing.
