Well classes are already an order of magnitude too much for many 
people. The fact is that for each elements and attributes of XHTML, 
there should (tempted to use MUST) be one or more use cases 
illustrating  the benefits of the markup, but also showing the 
implementability of it. We are far from that in HTML for a long time.

I would be also very surprised to see a XHTML requirement document 
based on the desires/needs of common users.
