As discussed at our May 2013 F2F meeting, the TAG would like the HTML WG to
consider the following preface language for "Status of This Document":

This document summarizes design guidelines for authors who wish their XHTML or
HTML documents to validate on either HTML or XML parsers. This specification is
intended to be used by web authors, particularly authors who want to serve
receivers which may have either (but not both) XML or HTML parsers available.
This commonly arises in legacy systems and content syndication. Polyglot is one
of several transition mechanisms from legacy XML to HTML5 and this document
serves to describe it accurately.

No recommendation is made in this document or by the W3C regarding whether or
not to publish polyglot content. In general, authors are encouraged to publish
HTML content using HTML5 syntax and media types (either HTML syntax and
text/html, or XHTML syntax andapplication/xhtml+xml

This document is not a specification for user agents and creates no obligations
on user agents. Note that this recommendation does not define how
HTML5-conforming user agents should process HTML documents. Nor does it define
the meaning of the Internet Media Type text/html. For user agent guidance and
for these definitions, see [HTML5] and [RFC2854].
