Dear HTML Working Group,

  Section 3.1 of the XHTML 1.0 Second Edition Recommendation states:

  A Strictly Conforming XHTML Document is an XML document that requires
  only the facilities described as mandatory in this specification.

There does not seem to be a definition of "XML document" and the XML 1.0
Recommendation does not seem to be a normative reference, hence it is by
no means clear for example whether strictly conforming documents may be
authored using XML 1.1 or any future XML versions. If you mean that only
XML 1.0 can be used to author XHTML 1.0 documents, please state this in
the relevant section and make the XML 1.0 Recommendation in its latest
version a normative reference of the specification.
