I agree. Of course, MathML definitely isn't part of XHTML. As well as XForms 
is not part of XHTML.
I think the profile containing SVG and MathML should be part of the XHTML 2.0 
Recommendation and not an additional one. Otherwise I think MS and some other 
vendors will continue to refuse in supporting SVG and MathML.

Of course you are right. It's just a bit more work to create distinct IDs.
But on the other hand it forces the creator to use stylesheets, and since IDs 
are somewhat specific, the creator will use classes here and there, so 
removing the style attribute surely will encourage elaborate, well-thought 
style sheets.
By making me think about it again, you removed my scepticism and convinced me.
