[Bug 11754] Should clearly indicate that Web authors don't need to bother to make their content polyglot if they don't know they have a use case

The Editor's Draft of 11 February states the following in the Introduction:

]]
All web content need not be authored in polyglot markup. Polyglot markup is
ideal for publishing when there's a strong desire to serve both HMTL and XML
tool chains without simultaneously having to maintain dual copies of the
content: one in HTML and a second in XHTML. In addition, a single polyglot
markup output requires less infrastructure to produce than to produce both HTML
and XHTML output for the same content. Polyglot markup is also be beneficial
when lightweight processes—such as quick testing or even hand-authoring—are
applied to content intended to be published both as HTML and XHTML, especially
if that content is not sent through a tool chain. 
[[

I believe that this fulfills the requirements of this bug and so I have
resolved it.

Thanks for your help,

Eliot
