Say what? XML 1.0 makes normative reference to Unicode and ISO 10646
already. XML 1.1 only adds Charmod (and XML 1.0) to the normatie
references. The table in Appendix B is gone, but only because all the
work is now being done by production 4 (and new 4a), it being short
enough not to require reference to an Appendix.
The *intent* behind XML 1.1 is in fact less bound to the Unicode tables
than XML 1.0's was.

To say that Bilbo's breath was taken away is no description at all. There
are no words left to express his staggerment, since Men changed the language
that they learned of elves in the days when all the world was wonderful.
