I think the 'lines of at most 76 characters' part should be binned when
used inside xml - It doesn't look like a useful restriction and introduces
significant whitespace to documents that might otherwise not have it.

Good, then you'll be happy with the status quo. I don't know how other
implementers have interpreted the issue, but I think you are correct
that the line length restriction doesn't make as much sense outside of
the smtp/mime context.

  Your implementation passed all James Clark tests on this datatype
which sounds pretty good to me, though none of them have lines with
more than 60 characters.
