I've reviewed the current (18 August 2011) Editor's Draft of Polyglot
Markup: HTML-Compatible XHTML Documents [1].

I think we should discuss the following with an eye to submitting
a comment.

1) Namespace declarations [2]

 "Polyglot markup does not declare any other default or prefixed
  element namespace, because [HTML5] does not natively support the
  declaring of any other default or prefixed element namespace."

 This is incompatible with the resolution [3] of HTML Issue-120 [4].

Otherwise, there are no issues I see with this document that are
particularly in the TAG's area.  Overall I think it's pretty good.
