More to the point, now is the perfect time to change it. Prior recommendations for XHTML tried for some backwards compatibility. XHTML 2.0 is the big switch that will break most of that compatibility. So now is the time to include it, both to emphasize that it is *not* HTML and also to avoid doing it in the future when it move even farther away from HTML (and thus breaking backwards compatibility with XHTML 2.0).
