Will the spec explain this some more, in particular could you document
what "standards mode" is, and exactly how user agents should use this
doctype to trigger it?

Would it not be better to just require WF2/WA user agents to render it
in this "standards mode" you talk of?  Or at the very least use
something that would not confuse people into thinking that it is an
application of SGML or XML.
