The ruby content in the XHTML 2.0 spec is simply a link to the Ruby Annotation recommendation, so I don't think there's much more to say on the matter.  Would it help to say that, though?  (I didn't want to do much more than hint at its availability in XHTML 2 until that spec at least gets to CR, though. Things can still change.)

Yes, I'm not sure about it either, however it's on the radar for inclusion in the output of the ITS (Internationalized Tag Set) WG, so I guess I'll know more soon.
