The proposal to drop "XHTML" from the title is only a "bikeshedding" type of
thing, right? (I.e. you don't propose that XHTML-compatibility becomes
optional. That is: you don't propose that "closing tags" is enough.) If one
drops it from the title, then one might need to add it elsewhere. It would be
good if you proposed a full alternative title - as is, it is not enough to just
drop "XHTML". And I must say that I don't quite see the benefit of dropping it.

Regarding "profile", then I have always seen this a profile. So I am only favor
of making that aspect stronger. IN that regard, then I have always reacted to
the "guidelines" description found in the list of "Editor's drafts":
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/#current

I would also like to suggest that the intro describes polyglot markup as a
single syntax that authoring tools could implement - as alternative to two
syntaxes, XHTML5 and HTML5. Something which has the potential of simplifying
things for users of such authoring tools.

I feel that most of what you say are things we have thought about when working
with this spec. But I agree that it could be good to describe the advantages
better.
