Support for XHTML is by no means additional effort. XHTML is today used
in two ways:

-- on the web, served to browsers, usually with wrong media type and not
well-formed - such XHTML is covered in section
http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-its20-20121206/#xhtml5-markup and can be
processed directly by HTML5 parser or can be processed by HTML5-ready
tools once DOM is created

-- as an storage/interchange format in CMS - in this case XHTML is real
XML and can be processed by using XML tools, including ITS tools
designed for XML

So just based on use scenario you can process XHTML with HTML5 or XML
