This is a QA Review comment for "XHTML 2.0"

the name is prone to typos and mistakes, very close from the character "1". There is certainly a need for compacity, but that might cause troubles to number of developers.
The behaviour of the element is not explained. is it like a "span" element? or a span with a line break in the end? Being an inline element it's certainly the first case, but some developers might rush and implement an notion of line with a carriage return. A warning would be helpful.
