It appears it has been that way since before XHTML 1.1 first edition
transitioned to REC, which means XHTML 1.1 PR would have been in violation of
Pubrules as Pubrules exist today. (I didn't check if Pubrules were different on
this point at the time of XHTML 1.1 1st ed. PR publication.)

It seems to me that there's been quite a bit of selective attention paid to the
W3C rules in the sense that the (current) HTML WG gets much more Process
scrutiny than the XHTML2 WG. It seems weird that the media type change
controller issue gets this much scrutiny in the context of the HTML WG while
the XHTML2 WG publishes rules about text/html in a Note that isn't subject to
the reviews provided by the W3C Process.
