Of course it can be - and is.  Ken's page seems to me a textbook example
of doing several things right where all too many dezyners fail, and it
validates correctly with Site Valet and WDG Validator, both of which
explicitly support XHTML 1.1.

The issue with the W3 validator is merely that is doesn't yet recognise
the XHTML1.1 doctype, so it treats it as it would a custom DTD and
fetches the DTD to validate.
