At the top of the cited page:

  The 'application/xhtml+xml' media type registration is now complete,
  published as RFC 3236 <http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc3236.txt>.
  This document defines the 'application/xhtml+xml' media type for
  XHTML based markup languages; it is not intended to obsolete any
  previous IETF documents, in particular RFC 2854 which registers
  'text/html'.

RFC 3236 is just a registration.

RFC 2854 (dated June 2000, actually written earlier) explicitly
envisions the modularization of HTML.

There is still inadequate guidance unless one listens to individuals
who profess knowledge of the right thing.
