That 2001-04-10 version isn't the same as in (2006-07-05):

Apparently I looked into a Last Call Working Draft version
1.1 of XHTML 1.1, and you used the official version 1.0

The draft uses CDATA where you found NMTOKEN.  And the
datatypes module of the draft claims to be written 2001:

| Revision: $Id: xhtml-datatypes-1.mod,v 4.1 2001/04/06 19:23:32 altheim Exp $ SMI
[...]
|    Revisions:
|    (none)

Is "2001/04/06" an oddity of the version control system ?
This managed to confuse me, sorry.  Here's a quote from
its "appendix I" (Changes from XHTML modularization 1.0):

| * Section 5 - Attribute Collections 
[...]
|   + Corrected the definition of xml:lang to take CDATA,
|     not NMTOKEN. 

Was that draft 1.1 rejected, or something ?  The intro 
says that the Last Call ended August 2006.
