Thanks, I've logged this but don't think we'll do anything about it least
for this version. In a sense it _is_ invalid as all valid document types to
send as app/xhtml+xml are XML based. But I do see the problem with this.

By definition there is _no_way_ any problem can be my fault. Any problems
you think you can find in my code are in your imagination. If you continue
with such derranged imaginings then I may be forced to perform corrective
brain surgery... with an axe!                            -- Stephen Harris
