I must be seriously missing something here.  Of course, if we mean the 
verbiage in the Infoset spec about "element information items" , you're 
right, but I don't think anyone has ever argued that the Infoset spec 
is of much interest to anyone besides specwriters.  If, on the other 
hand, we use "infoset" to mean the labeled tree data model, all DOM, 
XSLT, and XQuery-based applications use the "Infoset abstraction" and 
only consume the XML syntax after a parser has done its magic to turn 
it into nodes, events, objects, or whatever.
