Thanks for the clarifications.  I haven't read the fine print to
determine whether I'll be doing things in the right order, but the
refined version of my "mild test" will be to post three action items
(two specific and one not-so-specific) to the www-html-editor list,
aimed at the XHTML 1.1 spec:

  1.  That the requirement mandating a document type declaration
      be removed.

  2.  That the requirement for user-agents to "render the content"
      of an unrecognized element be removed.

  3.  That the requirements for user-agents now stated as "musts"
      be amended to "shoulds".

I note that while #1 has been discussed on this list, to the extent
that a rationale (which I find unconvincing) has been offered, #2 and
#3 as they stand now in the spec still remain unexplained.

I presume the reply (if any) will show up on www-html-editor, too?
(Just so I know where to look?)
