There's two issues at work: a technical one of conformance, and an

To the first:
I can write an XHTML 1.1 document that contains only features of XHTML 1.0,
is it wrong to use the XHTML 1.1 doctype? Is it wrong to call a document
XHTML 1.0 Transitional when it only uses Strict features?
It's not just a label, these documents would be fully conformant to 1.1 or
Transitional, they just don't use all the features.
To the second:
Do we really want to walk the path of *requiring* features (beyond those
structures that are required of an XML document) in order to be compliant?
Adding bulk to substantiate a brand? Sounds like what's required of some
software developers in order to gain a "Foo Brand Compliant" sticker.
