The spec indeed requires a strictly conforming document to have the xmlns
attribute for the html element
http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/conformance.html#strict

However, it looks like the DTD (the grammar published with the standard, and
used to validate) does not include any such requirement. 

I'll ask the spec authors whether this was a mistake or if the omission in the
DTD was on purpose.
