I'm lost.

If html5 is the official contination of html4.x and xhtml is an xml version
of html4 and html5 will have an xml verion...why is there still a completely
separate XHTML2?

Aren't all the major browsers members of this working group and pushed for
html5 to be the official new version? Won't that mean there'll likely not be
anyone implementing xhtml2 when/if they ever finish writing their specs?
