Is it still the case that there is no plan for libxml2 to support xml

  I have heard only verly little demand so far.

It would be useful for cleanly parsing certain ascii chars...

  Hum, you may be mistaken, those are only allowed in 1.1 as CharRef
i.e.  if you have a byte with the value of 1 in the stream you still
get a fatal error. Moreover some of the bytes 128 and 256 may also
generate a fatal error while 1.0 parsers may have accepted them (depending
on the encoding).
  So "cleanly parsing certain ascii chars" does not sound at all an
appropriate description of what XML-1.1 actually offers.
