Since the Unicode work seems to be firing up the string-sig of late,
it might be better to split the two technical tracks up.  An xml-sig
with a narrow focus, hard deliverables, and known termination criteria
seems like the right approach to me.

web-sig is less appropriate since XML has usefulness outside the Web

doc-sig is less appropriate because we're not (yet) talking about how
to convert or write new Python documentation in XML.

Feel free (anyone) to volunteer your championhood and write up a
mission statement.
