Very interesting ... I missed that. They did not mention that at all at the

That's disappointing. Have you used it enough to determine if we are
at a superset of the standard or a deviation from the standard.

it has many "additions" to the standard.
If you look in MSDN you will see there is a little '*' next to all the MS
specific additions in the MSXML interfaces.
