Hello,

Thanks for your feedback.  Answering to your second point:

Yes, we do plan to provide a driver for XHTML Basic (and XHTML 1.1),
as indicated in our roadmap:

    http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/xhtml-roadmap/#schedule

We thought it would be better to finalize modularization first, as
the way to modularize schemas would affect the composition of driver
schema.  Once we have stable modules, writing up a driver would be
a trivial work.  We have received a lot of useful feedback for
Modularization of XHTML in XML Schema Last Call Working Draft, and
we are updating the Modularization in Schema document to reflect
those comments.  When we are done, drivers for XHTML Basic and XHTML 1.1
will also be published, probably in a separate document.
