My point with saying this is that it is actually "old news" that XHTML 
1.1. aims for permission to be served as text/html: It was there, in 
the rescinded version.

And, btw, the permission to serve XHTML 1.1. is already issued! [1][2] 
For a small overview, see Wikipedia. [3]

The new thing that the planned PER of XHTML 1.1. aims for is just 
_more_ compatibility with "the Web". By allowing the @lang attribute. 
(And some other things - ask the XHTML2 working group!) In other words: 
So that it becomes possible to serve the same XHTML 1.1. document both 
as text/html and as application/xhtml+xml, with the same semantics.
