That's for when you serve the document as XML and suffers from the same
caveats as the XML Decl (which bears a strange resmeplance to a PI itself

BTW, this also goes to adress your earlier comments on filename extensions.
At some point in the future, I'll make XHTML 1.1 versions of all the pages
on v.w3.org. These will be named .xhtml and all links will be changed to
omit the filename extension so browsers can conneg between the XHTML 1.0 as
text/html and XHTML 1.1 as application/xhtml+xml.

The new versions will (probably) use the xml-stylesheet PI.
