    Okay I know your looking at SCSU for this now, but in case you return to this
    I'll make this point.

    Do you plan to support XML1.1 with XOM? The C0 controls forbidden in the 1.0
    spec are allowed in the 1.1 spec if they appear as character references - so
    this no longer holds (unless you store them as references or otherwise escaped,
    which would bring its own issues).
