My mistake. I remember having a long debate with
Dan C. about it being normative.
I would prefer it were. In the long run, I think
it advantageous to keep these two works symmetrical.
I understand that is a work problem. Even the normative
references to URIs and Unicode have problems.

Umm, what normative reference? XML 1.0 has an *informative*
reference to ISO 8879. The normative references are about URIs,
language tags, and Unicode.
