I care about polyglot documents, but (to repeat*) I only care
about the intersection between HTML 5 and well-formed XML;
I don't care about DTD-valid XML.

I'm happy to let DOCTYPEs die; I regret adding them to HTML in the
1st place.

There was something in the HTML 5 spec that suggested
HTML 5 documents that happen to be XML-well-formed were
somehow not allowed, but that was acknowledged as a bug (#8154)
and got fixed. So I'm content.
