I would suggest the DOCTYPE princple to be expresss roughly like this:

]] Enumerating the DOCTYPE use options:
* All DOCTYPEs that the HTML5 text/html syntax rules considers 
  conforming (<!DOCTYPE html SYSTEM="about:legacy-compat"> and 
  <!DOCTYPE html> and, inside @srcdoc, no DOCTYPE.)
* Any _XHTML_ DOCTYPEs that HTML5 text/html syntax defines as 
  obsolete but conforming;
* Any _XHTML_ DOCTYPE that, following HTML5's text/html parsing 
  rules, results in no-quirks mode. [[

All the above doctypes are considered polyglot.
