How about before reading it and before it gets pushed to PR, I note 
that a change of this nature is a violation of the W3C's advertised 
process? Specifically, section 7.4.3, 
which states:

After gathering implementation experience, the Working Group MAY 
remove features from the technical report that were identified as 
being "at risk" and request that the Director Call for Review of a 
Proposed Recommendation. If the Working Group makes other substantive 
changes to the technical report, the Director MUST return it to the 
Working Group for further work.

If the Working group feels it's important to make this substantive 
change in the BNF grammar of XML 1.1 at this point in time, then it 
must go back to working draft, not forward to PR.
