Remind backward compatibility issues.

I think that this statement is obsoleted as new classes emptytag and 
xmlpi are there for couple of years. I don't know about any other 
classes needed in conjuction with XML.

There is also new namespace attribute for assigning namespace to element 
or attribute marked up by sgmltag.

So do you see still any lack with sgmltag except little name 
inconvenience when used for XML related markup?
