OK. But I suggest to burry 'profile' a little - it is not very sexy. See below.

Ah, I did not get, before now, that 'robust' links to Postel’s law … A good

To make it as easy as possible for the editor, how about simply replacing
'polyglot' with 'robust'? (At least for the most part.) Also, in order to speak
about XHTML5, without saying it, I would suggest to alter the part after the
colon as well. 

All in all, I propose:

   <h1>Robust Markup: A serialization agnostic profile of HTML5.</h2>
