That all has to be discussed.  (I really shouldnt have mentioned that, I find
it confusing enough trying to keep up with the latest XML draft, let alone
all the suggestions being considered for SGML!  There is a big back catalog of
changes that WG4 has approved for the revision. The ones with a specific
correlation to XML have been expedited for WebSGML [the update to SGML] 
so that XML and SGML will be in synch.)
