I realize that "polyglot serializers will observe polyglot serialization rules"
is a tautology. That's good, because it means we can dictate what the syntax is
going to be (IMHO it should be minimal without unnecessary talismans) without
having to worry about other tools that are unsuitable for the task.

IE6 is fading away, and I think conforming HTML5 documents should never be
allowed to be in quirks mode, so this use case for me is an argument against
allowing XML declaration.

What editors are we talking about? Do they support other HTML5 elements and
polyglot rules, or are they just XHTML Appendix C compatible?

If they're just "XHTML1/HTML4" polyglots, then it may be a good thing to flag
something is not right when you want to use it for XHTML5/HTML5.
