(Maybe that's why there aren't enough XHTML users yet?) Could an XHTML document somehow be considered a tree of sub-documents, each of which could parse or fail to parse on its own merits? Or an XMLesque datatype that could be cast into real XML using the heuristics documented in the HTML5 spec? There must be some halfway house between pure XML-XHTML and the HTML5 monolith... Web browser makers have no great incentive for throwing content out due to small errors. It shouldn't be beyond the abilities of this community to come up with a compromise story that allows the best of XML's facilities to live with the kind of compromises and hackery typical when dealing with ugly Web data.
