  (I didn't catch any of the discussion before Andrew CC'd the
XML-SIG, so I think I'm missing some of the context here.)
  What you probably want to do is to pass an example that uses the PI
syntax in all situations that you intend to support (including in
attribute values if you want that), and pass it through a validating
parser.  If it complains, you'll know what's broken.  If it doesn't,
then go ahead and use it.  I'd rather see PI syntax used over comment
syntax for either SGML or XML for this sort of processing.

  You're welcome.  ;-)
