In my humble opition I think that both solution are great, expecially
a profile like XHTML+SVG+MathML [1] can be useful. Also for give a
fast way to identify diffusion by checking DTD. I don't hope that
Validator [2] has also statistical purposes (but it can be useful for
stats on standards diffusion [3]). We may also consider to ask User
Agents to downlaod particular DTD. Actually not all User Agents
download these DTD  but use a cached DTD taken, probably, from w3.org
site.

Simone
