Isn't it all the more odd that Ann wrote, "XHTML 2.0 retains much of the 
familiar because that familiar is practical, useful, and comfortable. There 
is no need to reinvent paragraphs, bulleted lists, and other simple document

I wonder if the HTML user community will be at least as concerned about those 
changes as the supposed concern about XLink. :)
