Per your overview, XHTML 1.0 defines 89 elements - the transitional 
mode document type included, while XHTML 1.1 includes only 83 elements. 

While this is true "by default", from 'XHTML™ Modularization 1.1 - 
Second Edition', the XHTML 1.1 specification also includes a legacy 
module which, by default, is ignored, but which, when enabled, AFAIK 
covers all the transitional elements plus the 6 ruby elements, meaning 
that it covers 95 elements. 

It would therefore be quite correct to include the elements of the 
legacy module in the kind of overview you have made.
