I've had to deal with "element only" xml and it's not that pleasant...
instead of the usual:

<item type="foo">value<item>

you have the verbose:


and your xpaths go from:

item[@type = 'foo']


item[type = 'foo']/value

...so not great.

I agree with no DTDs, no namespaces, UTF-8 only etc... mixed content
has to stay otherwise you may as well not call it xml.
