And of course, that's the cause of a lot of the problems.
The more I watch things at W3C, the more I feel that the Web should be
driven instead by a standards organization with public accountability.
Being accountable to vendors who have vested interests in bloatware (as
key parts of new barriers to entry) isn't the right model.
Somebody did the basic math in a comment: three variants of XHTML will
very quickly add an order of magnitude to the complexity of the systems
built with it. That's a deterrent to the use of XHTML, and discards the
simplification that's long been at the core of the XML movement.
