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

* I have read on multiple avenues, that the HTML WG MAY publish a detailed tutorial for XHTML 2.0. I'm worried by the "MAY", the only way, XHTML 2.0 will get wide adoption in different Web communities, is by giving access to materials easily understandable explaining all features of the languages.

People will be able to implement the language in their templates, forms, and authoring tools. Show, don't tell is always better in these circumstances.

If the HTML WG is overwhelmed by the work it represents, I would encourage to call the community and different evangelists organization to help on writing these. These organizations are full of people editing books: WASP, Openweb, Evolt, W3Quebec, Maccaws. It could be developed on a wiki. People would add use cases and would have the practical side of XHTML 2.0 specification.

* Provide also an XSLT and/or an online service which gives the possibility to convert document from XHTML 1.0/XHTML 1.1 to XHTML 2.0
