Since the purpose of using a DOCTYPE (especially the above doctype!) is 
to make sure that XHTML and HTML show the same behavior,  I think the 
rules for the XHTML syntax should give some general rules (free from 
DTD-validity dependence!) for how the DOCTYPE of such documents should 
look like. I mention it in this thread since I think it is relevant to 
this extension.

I have opened bug 20993 to discuss this matter, and in the third 
comment there, I offer a concrete text proposal for the spec.[1]
