What that means is that Liam has increased some of the builtin system
limits in the SGML declaration.  Where this is relevant is when
certain elements have gazillions of proprietary attributes, as can
happen when someone takes the already-bloated HTML4-loose DTD and
extends it to allow their favourite hacks.

It would very definitely not affect an XHTML 1.1 document.
