Note added in ​

It is more useful to specify the XML format version using the URI of a spec file, such as Therefore, it is reduntand, useless , and error prone to have a <version> element, which currently stands right at the beginning of the <feedback> element.

There are several tools that can validate XML syntax based on a specification. To allow automated syntax verification, reports should refer to the schema version in the feedback element namespace, for example, like so:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
