I don't want to quote John's rant about XHTML, but I don't think he sees 
it as a logical step
from forgiving HTML to unforgiving XML.  While I'm not a computer 
programmer, I've been
a mark-up coder for over 20 years now, from TeX to HTML to XML to 
XHTML.  I don't
think it's the W3C's job to worry too much about the user interface.  It 
is the W3C's job
to develop and publicize standards and "let the market" worry about the 
user interface.
Heck, I use Emacs and Arachnophilia to code my pages, so I don't really 
worry
too much about that!
