Karl, I have just explained that using "XML" instead of "XHTML" is problematic.
Only "XHTML" can distinguish between HTML5 and XHTML5 as it is possible to use
XML syntax in HTML5 text/html web pages.

I'm sure Mike's just trying to be nice and keep the peace, but it is not a good
solution.

So what? We can't let silly politics hold back the progress of the web and the
validation of XHTML web sites Karl.

Yeah, I've already seen that, so what? Sam's heading in the wrong direction and
this has been pointed out on his blog and on www-html.
