The compatibility problem is everyone else. There are a lot of very
knowledge-able people that view xml 1.1 as DOA (I haven't been able to
find one person who think it's a good standard (apart from the W3C), go
figure). Note that a 1.1 document isn't backward compatible *at all*, so
I would recommend dropping even thinking about xml 1.1 as a viable
alternative.
