Non-XHTML Host Language conforming documents in the context of this  
specification are "XHTML Integration Set Document"s.

It is fairly standard practice for specifications to include rules about  
naming for conforming documents. XML for instance says that attributes  
that begin with the three letters "xml" are reserved. This rule does not  
apply to SGML documents (or Pascal programs for that matter).
