Actrually, I don't think so. A PSVI is not one kind of Infoset, at 
least if by Infoset you're referring to the thing described by the 
XML Information Set specification. A PSVI includes an Infoset but 
there's more to it than that, specifically types and validity 
information. By analogy, a laptop computer is not a kind of CPU even 
though it contains a CPU. A PSVI is not a kind of infoset  even 
though it contains an Infoset.
