text/html — tag soup — gets processed with OpenSP, generic 
XML types with a generic XML Processor, and MIME types for which 
we have a “better” parser (e.g. a custom or specific Schema 
of some kind, or a higher level parser) gets that parser instead 
of the generic XML Processor.

Yes, this implies XHTML will get treated differently depending 
on whether it is served as text/html or application/xhtml+xml. 
This is a feature.

I have to admit that I'm hoping the current situation with 
regard to XML
Namespaces and W3C XML Schemas is a giant practical joke,   but 
I see no
signs of pranksters coming forward with a gleeful smile to 
announce that
they were just kidding.                              -- Simon St.Laurent
