The HTML Working Group discussed this issue and were astonished that anyone
might think that XHTML 1.0 demands anything other than an XML document; XML
is used so often in the document...

But anyway, lest there be any doubt, we will change the first occurrence of
the word "document" in 3.1 to "XML document", and I hope that will clear up
any doubt in your mind!
