    Modularization in XHTML has superceded the idea of embedding XML in an
<XML> tag. XHTML Basic 1.0 is the first W3C recommendation to make use of
Modularization. RDDL uses this technique of namespace qualification.

    You either care about validation or not. If so, <!ELEMENT XML #any> is a
weak excuse for validation, hence why not create a real XHTML Extension. If
you don't care about validation then stick whatever XML wherever you want in
the XHTML using whatever tag you please.
