| Again, unless I'm mistaken, the reason that a number of features in
| XTM were initially made optional (and later made optional as well),
| was that among the various requirements for XTM was the need for an
| authoring syntax. If certain features are required this means that
| authoring tools must constantly switch back and forth between
| validation and non-validation as the document goes in and out of
| compliance.

That's what I've been told as well, and while it does make sense I'm
not sure that principle was used correctly, but by now that is of
course so much water under the bridge.
