section 4 of

http://dev.w3.org/html5/html-xhtml-author-guide/WD-html-polyglot-20101019.htm

allows the use of about:legacy-compat, it is not clear that this leads to well
formed xml, since I don't think about:legacy-compat resolves to anything (even
an empty string would be OK as a minimum dtd subset) Of course one could argue
that the xml parser need not fetch external subsets, or a catalog may
substitute a different file, but if that argument were to be used it would
apply equally to the html3.2 and html4 doctype strings, but the text here says
that they are incompatible with xml.
