I'd argue that this document is of a type which cannot be identified.
Since:-

* The meaning of an XML document is given by its root namespace
* The namespace for XHTML is http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml

N.B. A document with the root element:-

<html xsl:version="1.0"
     xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
     xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">

Would be a version of XHTML whose schema I have not come across yet.
