I think it's unnecessarily complicated for the UA's, especially as those UAs
which can render inline XHTML can already do it (by putting an OBJECT
element in the foriegnObject) That may not be particularly neat, but since
the ability to render XHTML foriegnObjects is likely limited to those which
could also render inline XHTML, I don't think much is lost.

Jim.
