Just for the record, XHTML 2.0 isn’t even close yet to becoming a 
Recommendation, so let’s not worry about that. The IE developers 
mentioned that XHTML support was something they’d consider for Internet 
Explorer 8, and if Internet Explorer 8 is released in a year from now, 
or two, it will still be released before XHTML 2.0 has proceeded to 
Recommendation, possibly even before it has become a Candidate 

Additionally, the web isn’t the only place where XHTML is used. In the 
publishing system for my company’s website, I am using XHTML 2.0 (mainly 
because of <section>, <h>, <l> and @role, and I like the addition of 
@href attributes to everything as well) based on the current working 
draft right now.
