While development hasn't been based on the hope of one company or another 
supporting the technology,
I personally think that Microsoft's insistence that they don't support 
XHTML 1.0 is quite silly (for long argued issues about MIME types and 
cracking documents, etc.

The premise of the question, I believe, is actually faulty -- it assumes 
XHTML 1.0 hasn't caught on, and I don't believe that's the case.

Even if that assertion were to remain debated, as Simon says, XHTML 2.0 
moves away from any attempts at backward compatibility, leaving it free to 
accomplish so much more moving forward.
