Polyglot Markup: HTML-Compatible XHTML Documents marks its introduction as
non-normative and has "Normative References". This implies that the document is
normative.

The publication should be a set of logical conclusions inferred from the HTML5,
XML, Namespaces in XML and DOM (and possibly CSS) specs. As such, it logically
should be totally void of any normative statements of its own.

Please mark the publication as non-normative and state that it states logical
conclusions drawn from the normative matter in other publications.
