Dan, I read the discussion (thanks for the link). XHTML 1.0 beyond XHTML
1.0 (1.1, etc.) is modular.

You had suggested calling XHTML5 XHTML 1.5 made sense to me - but is it
modular? If not then html5/XML seems to make sense.

For the XML serialization of HTML5, recent
drafts in the HTML WG (http://www.w3.org/html/wg/) use "XHTML5".

http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/html5/html4-differences/Overview.html
in progress; WG email discussion of it started 13 June

http://dev.w3.org/cvsweb/~checkout~/html5/spec/Overview.html
in progress; adopted as background text for review 9 May

"Steven Pemberton, from the XHTML 2.0 WG, requested a few times that
we do not call it XHTML 5, but something html5x or html5/XML."

If you'd like to elaborate on that, or endorse it as a group,
or anything like that, please do, and let me know, and I'll
relay it back to the HTML WG. Or you can join the discussion
directly, if you prefer, either as individuals or as
a delegated liaison.

Current discussion in the HTML WG includes a variety of viewpoints,
including Jirka Kosek's
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2007Jun/0260.html
and Henri Sivonen's
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2007Jun/0255.html

Oh... it's also relevant to note on 9 May the HTML WG
also decided, formally, that the W3C's next-generation HTML
specification be named "HTML 5".
