Comments also don't work well because the "--" (hyphen-hyphen)
sequence is illegal in XML comments.  In fact, even with elements you
probably need to use CDATA escapes.  I would definitely place a $Log$
inside an element body, as in


Other tags could probably either be inside attributes or elements,
depending upon how structured the value is.

I do agree that XML namespaces should be used.

One big problem with automatically inserting text into a document is
that of character sets.  What if the XML document uses UTF-16 rather
than UTF-8 or even ISO-8859-15?  But I don't know if that is easily
solved.  Of course XML basically dictates that UTF-8 is the default
unless its either explicitly specified or it can be automatically
detected to be something else.
