Part of the problem here is what is and what isn't confidential discussions
in a WG. If this were a W3C-internal list, I could be more forthcoming, but
as I said earlier, I tend to err on the side of caution there. 

As for XHTML 1.0 -- being a reformulation of HTML 4.0 into XML, the black
and white valid or not stance remained. 

As to future work.....I can only comment on public drafts.
