Hi,
This is a QA Review comment for "XHTML 2.0"

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

It is good to have flexibility in defining things, but when flexibility is added, it often requires best practices. Sometimes XHTML 2.0 defines many ways of doing the same thing which might create struggling for the author.

Example:
		rel="dc:source" + href="uri"
	and cite="uri"

Either remove things when they are really duplicate, or create a section which gives the different possibilities and recommend one which is preferred.
