Nifty... I notice 

"This document, while well-formed and using the HTML vocabulary
consistent with the HTML 2, 3.2, and 4 standards, bears no DTD and is
not a strictly conforming XHTML document."

And indeed, the question of which HTML specs to cite is
tricky. I chose REC-xhtml-modularization-20010410
for http://www.w3.org/2004/01/rdxh/spec#XHTML

There we find...
"A conforming XHTML family document is a valid instance of an XHTML Host
Language Conforming Document Type."

Oh. Hmm... that still requires a DTD. Well, I guess that's consistent
with the GRDDL spec:
 "To accomodate the DTD-based syntax of XHTML[XHTML], which precludes
using attributes from foreign namespaces ..."

I think there's a name for the sort of document that
multipleRepresentations.html is... I think it's in the XHTML 1
spec. Well, it's discussed in 3.1.2. Using XHTML with other namespaces
  http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/#well-formed
but I guess it's not given a name.
