Except that it is not. It adds quite an amount of attributes in the XHTML  
namespace. Besides using xml:id I could now use xhtml:id on any number of  
elements as well as xhtml:onkeypress as the subject of this thread  
suggests. These are quite substantial changes from previous versions of  
XHTML I'm sure not many implementors would've agreed to.

(Also, the Second Edition of XHTML 1.0 got a number of fixes that never  
went into this specification probably due to lack of proper review.)
