Hang on no one is arguinng that it should be an _error_ to serve SGML
(as opposed to XML) base html files as text/html are they?

I think it would be useful for mozilla/netscape to bail out of HTML
parsing if it sees an xml declaration at the start of the file, but it
certainly isn't broken if it does not do that.
