Remove all references to alternate serializations of the Infoset from The Atom Syndication Format 0.3.

There is no need have other serialization of Atom beyond XML 1.0. Atom is XML 1.0, there is no alternate serialization, and it should be clearly stated as such in the spec.
In Section 2 Atom Documents
"Atom is specified in terms of the XML Infoset, and therefore may be serialized in a variety of fashions. However, the canonical serialization of an Atom document is XML 1.0, and this is the only serialization that can be identified with the "application/atom+xml" media type."
The purpose of this proposal is to strictly specify XML 1.0 and to not allow other serializations.
Change the statement quoted in section 2 to read: "Atom is an application of XML 1.0 and XML Namespaces [W3C.REC-xml-names-19990114]. This specification uses terms from the XML Information Set to specify the structure of Atom documents"
Removed "No other serializations of an Atom document outside of XML 1.0 are permitted, and this is the only serialization that can be identified with the "application/atom+xml" media type." from this change, as the specification specifies what Atom is and does not need this degree of specifying what Atom is not.
