Hi,

  Section 3.2 of XHTML 1.0 item 2:

[...]
  When the user agent claims to support facilities defined within this
  specification or required by this specification through normative
  reference, it must do so in ways consistent with the facilities' 
  definition. 
[...]

XHTML 1.0 does not define it's own facilities, it only includes
facilities from other specificiations (HTML 4.01, XML Namespaces, XHTML
1.0) but these specifications are not normative but rather informative
references as Appendix E is informative. XHTML 1.0 does not make sense
without most of the references in Appendix E beeing normative.
