Compatibility with XHTML validators is not a design goal of HTML5.  If you want
to maintain an XHTML mode, you can use a mode switch, which outputs valid XHTML
in XHTML mode and valid HTML5 in HTML5 mode.  MediaWiki has done this since
1.16, released a year ago:

I don't think we're realistically going to make extra markup valid just to
support the use-case of pages that want to validate as XHTML 1.x as well as
HTML5.
