DTDs in WD-xhtml11-20000105 -- DTD mismatch

In WD-xhtml11-20000105, Section 3, we read:

   The XHTML 1.1 document type is made up of the following abstract
   modules: Structure, Basic Text, Hypertext, List, Applet,
   Presentation, Edit, BDO, Forms, Tables, Image, Image Map, Intrinsic
   Events, Metainformation, Scripting, Stylesheet, and Link as defined
   in [XHTMLMOD], and the Ruby Annotation module as defined in
   [RUBY]. There are no additional definitions required by this
   document type. An implementation of this document type as an XML
   DTD is defined in Appendix C.

No problem so far.

However, xhtml11.dtd contains

  <!ENTITY % xhtml-framework.mod
     PUBLIC "-//W3C//ENTITIES XHTML 1.1 Modular Framework 1.0//EN"
            "xhtml11-framework-1.mod" >

Yet, on the other hand, no such file "xhtml11-framework-1.mod" is
provided in xhtml-modularization, at least not in the latest available
draft, CR-xhtml-modularization-20001020 .  Rather, in that candidate
recommendation, we do find the file "xhtml-framework-1.mod".

The only place I could find a file with that name was at
<URL:http://www.ibiblio.org/xml/examples/xhtml/> Yet those files seem
to diverge, and I am unsure of what status if any the ibiblio files
have.

As a packager, attempting to provide working XHTML 1.1 materials to
document engineers or authors trying to try out the modular system,
I'm a bit at a loss, and the W3C materials do not seem to constitute a
working whole.


Recommended remedy:

Either modify the materials from CR-xhtml-modularization-20001020 to
provide the vesioned (1.1) files, or else remove the 1.1 versioning
from the references to the modularized XHTML in the XHTML 1.1 spec.
