Time permitting, can you add an agenda item to discuss cross-working 
group MIME type coordination?

Since I have been named as co-chair, I've been consistently against 
"active development of two incompatible vocabularies being served with 
the same media type and being defined in the same XML namespace"[1]

Yet, more recently, we've been informed[2], in a way that makes it sound 
like a fait accompli, that changes are being made to the remaining XHTML 
specs to do exactly that.

Note: I continue to have similar concerns[3] about this very working 
group's plans to define incompatible vocabularies without redefining the 
media type or XML namespace, but that's working its way through the 
system, primarily with bugs 7034 and 7468, and others[4].
