More error in XHTML 1.1

Hello,

In Section 3. The XHTML 1.1 Document Type,

the module for the script element is named "Stylesheet Module". XHTML Modularization calls this module "Style Sheet Module".


On the base element:

In HTML 4.01, the href attribute of the base element is defined as #REQUIRED.
In XHTML 1.0, the href attribute of the base element is defined as #IMPLIED.
In XHTML 1.1, the href attribute of the base element is defined as #REQUIRED.

I think, #IMPLIED is correct, because it should be able to use <base target="frame2" /> when the Frames Module is used.

On the form element:

The action attribute is required. I think it should be implied, and the user agent must use the URI containing the form element as destination for submitting the form when there is no action parameter.
Anyway, action is a bad name for that attribute since it has similar semantics as href in a, base and link and src in img and ... (object, applet...). But I think this will change for the better in XHTML 2.0 when making use 
of XML Base, XML Linking, XPointer etc..

Greetings

Christian Hujer
