A comment both for the preservation draft and draft-hansen-rfc-use-of-pdf.

When we embed the XML in the PDF, I suggest doing so without any additional
encoding or compression. Make it such that you can get to the XML with 
cat, dd,
or whatever filesystem recovery tool lets you extract a string of octets 
and shove them
into something that will treat it as UTF-8. Visually finding the 
boundaries of the document
if it's stored this way will not be difficult.
