There are 46 files with either Adobe- or Microsoft-specific tags or attributes 
in them in the current release.  I'll attach the list.  The program that finds 
them is only 39 lines long in its entirety (but could use some improvements).

There are also many broken files in the repository; the most common problem is 
that they use rdf:rdf tags without defining what the rdf: prefix means, 
probably because the tags were put in by an XML-blind script.

It may be easier to ditch perl and call out to a python script to do the task; 
I'd offer to do it, but I don't actually know what the task is (it doesn't seem 
to be in the tools package).
