I'm curious: are you thinking in general terms of XML
processing applications, or strictly about XML
processing tools (parsers, xslt/xquery tools)? I
thought that latter must handle PIs (whereas support
for comments was more optional), and at least
regarding parsers, they must be passed to handling

That obviously doesn't help with folks who re-define
what they think XML should mean (Soap, Xmpp) and omit
pieces they don't like.
