Consider a "valid XHTML document" with the following in some script:

   var x = document.getElementsByTagName('P');

Or the expectation from so many authors that the <body> element covers the  
whole canvas... There's way too many things that could go wrong. Switching  
on the media type is really the only viable way of doing this switch, imho.
