That's getting off-topic and I already hear the barking. Though, and sorry, that's a bit wish-wash. I read the XML rec as Scott (and implemented that way) that the name XML in any combination of upper-or-lower case is forbidden. Longer names starting with the chars XML in any combination of upper-or-lower case are allowed by this rule. I'd love to see a reference to the "rule elsewhere". There's a rule, that every qname starting with a prefix xml isn't OK. But we're talking about a name here, not a qname. Isn't XML about to have a sharp sword to distinguish well-formed from not well-formed?

Sure. Nobody knows, what the w3c decide. But anyway. If everything else works, such a PI name isn't a problem now and the next future.
