This is a QA Review comment for "XHTML 2.0"
8th WD

About http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-xhtml2-20060726/xhtml2-doctype.html

The section is declared *normative* then it says 

	"The Modules and their elements are listed here 
	for *information purposes*, but the definitions in 
	their base documents should be considered authoritative."

* Informative or normative?
* What is a "base document" for a module?
* http://www.w3.org/TR/2006/WD-xhtml2-20060726/mod-document.html
  Is it the base document for "XHTML Document module"?
* What is a "base document" in the one page html version or PDF version?

Do not tie the normative prose of the technology to the structure of the media, it belongs to. Change "base document" by "section describing the module".
