I would add a test case: finish XHTML Modularization.  The XML Schema
version should have all the flexibility of the DTD version.  In particular,
it should be possible to create a schema defining a simple subset of XHTML
using the W3C provided components.

Note, although minor details differ, there is great consensus in the Content
Management community about the need for and nature of a simple subset of
XHTML.  Although users should be able to use basic document features
(headings, paragraphs, lists and such), complex and/or programmatic features
(object, ilayer, iframe, frame, frameset, style and alignment attributes,
font, etc.) all need to be disabled for content authoring.

The important points here are that both specific features and whole modules
must be excluded.

Thanks for reading,
Charles Reitzel
