I was thinking along the lines of say three printed pages, appearing as the
first Appendix.  Just enough for a short example of an xHTML 1.0 document
being done in xHTML 1.1 with (say) the Table and the Image modules. Then a
paragraph or so on why this might be better (for both authors and UA
companies) than monolithic [x]HTML currently in use -- from a *practical*
standpoint.  You may be right about the adding-your-own being left to
(currently) sections D, E, and F and other resources, but IMO a document as
potentially important as this should have *something* as a kick-starter.
Like the xHTML 1.0 Rec has -- in the *body* of the text, not even in an
Appendix.
