Fair enough, but the abstract says:
"This document summarizes design guidelines for authors who wish their XHTML or HTML documents to validate on either HTML or XML parsers..."
http://dev.w3.org/html5/html-xhtml-author-guide/html-xhtml-authoring-guide.html#abstract


Given the focus on XHTML or HTML documents, I understood the SVG and MathML namespace references to deal with SVG or MathML elements within XHTML/HTML documents.  I may be wrong on this.  Either way, it might be valuable to clarify this point (is it about XHTML or multiple XML applications) in the document.
