XHTML uses "Extensibility through modules". There is a tutorial in 
<http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Guide/xhtml-m12n-tutorial/>. Here you can have 
hours of fun with the DTDs... 

So, yes, the idea of XHTML is that it should be extensible and applicable to 
your needs. Most of the W3C and non-W3C XHTML Profiles use this mechanism.
