I agree, that standards are very specific. Standards have their own
notion of correctness :) But if something, that's said in the standard
deviates from the reality, then the standard should modify itself.
Standard revisions and erratas achieve this purpose.

We are not asking to invent something different with the XML spec. We
are I think, only asking the XML spec to express the reality.
