Well, ok, if it does then I'll be a happy camper; but I really really
wished the I-D would say "This media type means XHTML" even if it then
punted by saying "XHTML may also be delivered with other media types and we
haven't decided how to distinguish between XHTML-variants yet". This I-D is
the "definitive" place to find what a media type means; _not_ XHTML 1.0 SE!

Put another way, I'd like xhtml+xml media type to be associated with
exactly one SGML Declaration and, if DTDs are to be "optional" -- in any
sense of the word -- to be associated with exactly _one_ DTD. If it also
came with a Schema... But lets not get ahead of ourselves. :-)
