We should ask Philippe Le Hégaret or Dimitris :) I would say yes, but  
I'm ready to change if needed.

The drawing implies that *every* modules is needed by all  
implementations. :) But that could be specified in the text around  
the graphics to make it really clear.

It's not defined like that. XHTML 1.1 is a full set of technology  
with no optional modules. Using XHTML Modularization it is possible  
to define new modules

[[[
3.1. XHTML Host Language Document Type Conformance
…
The DTD which defines the document type must include, at a minimum,  
the Structure, Hypertext, Text, and List modules defined in this  
specification.
…

conformance.html#s_conform_document_type

Plus in XHTML 1.1

[[[
The XHTML 1.1 document type is made up of the following XHTML  
modules. The elements, attributes, and minimal content models  
associated with these modules are defined in "Modularization of  
XHTML" [XHTMLMOD]). The elements are listed here for information  
purposes, but the definitions in "Modularization of XHTML" should be  
considered definitive. In the on-line version of this document, the  
module names in the list below link into the definitions of the  
modules within the current version of "Modularization of XHTML".

(…here the list of modules…)
