I’d need to look into the situation with Ruby but I just responded in
https://plus.google.com/u/0/+JensOMeiert/posts/2w14E3V7bFc with
respect to legacy elements.

Essentially, the situation here appears different from the one with
HTML 4 and XHTML 1.0 (whose Transitional doctypes have been chosen),
and calling out XHTML 1.1 legacy elements seems to go against the
spirit of the XHTML 1.1 spec.

While I recognize Transitional vs. legacy to mean somewhat of a fine
line, I believe the index itself to be consistent. It does call out
the Transitional elements, but nothing that was tucked away for legacy
support purposes. Which by the way also applies to HTML 5.

Please let me know if you deem this problematic.
