Dear Voice Browser Working Group,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/CR-voicexml21-20050613/ states in section 5

  If the name attribute is present, and the returned document is XML,
  the VoiceXML interpreter must expose the retrieved content via a
  read-only subset of the DOM as specified in Appendix D.

It's not clear how implementations must determine whether a document is
XML. For example, if the document is a HTTP resource labeled with a
media type, which media types would indicate that the content is "XML"?
It seems a text/plain document would not be "XML", but a application/
xhtml+xml document would; please change the document such that it is
clear which media types must and must not be considered "XML" by Voice-
XML 2.1 implementations.

The document also notes

  If the media type of the retrieved content is "text/xml" but the
  content is not well-formed XML, the interpreter throws error.badfetch.

It's not clear whether this also applies if the media type is e.g.
application/xml, please change the document such that this is clarified.

regards,
