I agree with Paul. The IESG approves the text version of a draft, so
the text version is definitive.
Making the XML available to the RFC Editor is for their convenience
The submission system should run xml2rfc on any submitted XML, compare
the generated to the submitted text version, and yell if they aren't
(If we want to get more complicated, the submission system could offer
a "submit anyway" option, which should raise a flag to the RFC Editor
that means "check XML against text version manually.")
