Really? How would you word this criterion? In fact,
<http://www.w3.org/TR/2000/REC-xhtml1-20000126/#docconf> was confusing:

| The root element of the document must designate the XHTML namespace using
| the xmlns attribute [XMLNAMES].

But I think the Second Edition made things clear: strictly conforming
documents must contain something like 
'<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">'.
