If XXX is supposed to be browser-sensitive and is supported by two or
more major browsers and the RELAX NG schema plugs into the HTML5
schema and comes under a Free Software license, yes. If XXX is not
meant to be browser-sensitive, it's harder to give exact criteria, but
it depends on XXX being on a REC track, XXX being supported by real
(non-browser) software that's used with HTML files that are also
browser-targeted, XXX support having real user demand from validator
users, XXX not confusing Web authors about its
browser-insensitiveness, etc.

I don't know enough about ITS to give an ITS-specific answer right now.
