To clarify, a bit more, because it started with a discussion I  
initiated in the office yesterday with olivier ;)

The goal would be to have a way to check if a document which looks  
like part of XHTML family could be checked for syntax and structure.  
Let's take a concrete example:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"

   <its:rules version="1.0" xmlns:h="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <its:translateRule selector="//h:meta[@name='keywords']/@content"
     translate="yes" />
    <its:termRule selector="//h:span[@class='term']" term="yes" />

    <title>Experimental XHTML document</title>


   <h1>Test of ITS on <span class="term">XHTML</span></h1>
   <p>Some text to translate.</p>
   <p its:translate="no">Some text not to translate.</p>

   <h2 class="nav" id="leftnav_label">Foo Services</h2>

    <ul title="Foo Services" role="navigation" aria- 
       <li><a href="/">Home</a></li>

   <p instanceof="cal:Vevent">
      <span property="cal:summary">one last summer Barbecue,</span>
      on <span property="cal:dtstart"  
content="20070916T1600-0500">September 16th at 4pm.</span>
