XHTML 2 - semantic logic
Scripting (JS?) - behaviour
CSS - presentation

Yes? No? Maybe?

If currently scripting/DOM manipulation is lacking, should that be XHTML's
problem any more than it is CSS's problem?

If you insist on using behavioural HTML, use an older doc type that allow
this: remember that HTML 4.01 is perfectly stable and usable for 99% of
current web sites/applications out there today.
