As I said below - this was an informal consensus. Everybody I spoke to about
it said that they thought that we would have to do XML to handle things like

Yes it completely breaks compatability - this is why I raised the issue as
strongly as I did. I still think that the Maui decision was wrong (but that
is water under the bridge now).
