The new Working Draft of XHTML Modularization does not merge the
Acknowledgement section from the XHTML Modularization in XML Schemas
documnent, at

http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-xhtml-m12n-schema-20031003/acknowledgements.html#a_acks

I think it is important to give acknowledgement to contributors, for
reasons of fairness (so that committees does not take all the credit for
the ideas of others), to encourage and reward participation (contributors
may need to demonstrate to investors or other stakeholders that their
activitities have borne fruit), to indentify credible old fogies (who can
bring up the backgrounds or tradeoffs to technologies when committees
change and forget.)

Cheers
