A better place would probably be the comp.infosystems.www.authoring.html 
newsgroup.

No.

The official list of chances can be found in the spec: 
http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml11/changes.html#a_changes

Unfortunately there are a number of undocumented changes as well. For example 
the data type for the class attribute has changed so 'class=""' is no longer 
allowed, and there is no provision for serving XHTML 1.1 as text/html as 
there is in Appendix C of XHTML 1.0 (even if it does have circular references 
and depends on a browser bug).
