That's for XHTML 1.0, which indeed MAY be served as text/html.
Not true for XHTML 1.1.

And XHTML 1.1 is clearly marked as SHOULD NOT be served as text/html.

Hence, as I said before, according to the specs:
* If you want text/html with XHTML, then stick to XHTML 1.0.
* If for some reason you want XHTML 1.1, then stick to application/ 
* There is no good reason to serve XHTML 1.1 as text/html.
