Since we took the poll, diminishing the difference between XML and 
HTML5 has gotten higher on my priority list. And, this decision *does* 
take a step in that direction. Given that we have taken that step, we 
should perhaps go the line out.

Correct me if I am wrong, but it seems to me that a change to the 
language determination algorithm would be another issue than the 
particular conformance requirement that we now have decided upon. 
Likewise, making html@lang obligatory would also be another issue, it 
seems. (I guess, if included in the change proposals that we voted on, 
then such options *could* have been part of the ISSUE-88, but in fact, 
they weren't.)
