The DOM WG has read section C.11 of the XHTML draft found at

We have one concern with this. The draft states:
"2.Applications that access XHTML documents served as Internet 
media types text/html, text/xml, application/xml can also use the 
XML DOM. Elements and attributes will be returned in lower-case."

This is actually incorrect. XHTML documents served as text/html 
will not be able (necessarily) to access XML features such as PIs, 
and elements will be returned in upper-case, and attributes using 
the casing specified in the Level 1 HTML DOM (where it is 
specified). If you delete the text/html from the list of media types, 
then that will fix the problem.
