Re: Choosing name for XML serialization (Was: Re: HTML5 differences from HTML4 editor's draft (XHTML5 and XHTML2))

I'm in favor of calling it XHTML1.5. My reasons:

* XML serialization of HTML5 seems to be logical continuation of XHTML/1.x.
* It would be baffling if W3C's language, that's compatible with  
XHTML/1.x, uses XHTML namespace and has every document containing 'xhtml',  
was in fact called something else.
* I don't think there's a need to develop HTML4-based XHTML up to version  
1.5, so this shouldn't interfere with XHTML WG's naming scheme.
* 1.5 version rightly places it as successor to XHTML/1.1 and not XHTML/2.
* 1.x naming scheme could be continued in parallel with HTML versions  
without making XHTML/2 look out-of-order.
