Hi David.

Reviewing this bug, I think I am finally getting that your desire is to have a
DTD created that would encompass that subset of HTML5 (+mathml+svg) that
intersects with valid XML and that is also compliant with the goal of polyglot
markup: creating identical document trees (with the exception of the xmlns
attribute on the root element) when processed as HTML and when processed as
XML. However, I do not have the time or wherewithal to create such a DTD. This
guide serves, in essence, as a description of the practices to adhere to and
avoid that would be enforced in such a DTD. 

If we had a person or team who could create such as DTD, I think that would be
fantastic. I would still want to keep the descriptions in this guide in
addition to that resource, though. This guide enables authors to see--at a
glance--what the rules are. They would then not have to parse the entire DTD to
infer those things that are unique to polyglot markup.

If you are willing to undertake the creation of such a resource, I would
welcome it, but, as I mentioned, I am not in a position to create it myself.
I'll resolve this as NEEDS INFO, in case you wish to do the work to create the
DTD and present it.

Thanks so much,
