The DOM Level 2 HTML Recommendation clearly states, that it doesn't
apply to XHTML documents. This makes it impossible to use convenience
features like HTMLCollections or the document.write() method in XHTML
documents. I'm advertising the use of XHTML but this shortcoming is a
strong argument against using XHTML, since a lot of people consider DOM
scripting rather important for common web pages.

What is the DOM WG planning to do for XHTML documents?
