Re: Representing whole XML documents

I propose a SRFI-108 style representation of whole documents using

S-expression ($xml-root version encoding standalone . children), where
"version", "encoding", and "standalone" are either string literals or #f.

Seems like a good idea.  However, this seems a place where keywords would
be preferable:

#&xml{version: 1.1 encoding: "UTF-8" standalone: #t
  doctype: "HTML"
  public: "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
  #<!--comment-->
  #<html>...</>
