The only one that I find myself forced to use is the wrap="virtual"
attribute on textareas.

Personally I agree that it would be good if these things were in the
XHTML 1.0 transitional DTD. 

There is no point in making them a XHTML 1.1 module since XHTML 1.1
shouldn't be served as text/html and the browsers that these things
target only support text/html.
