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.
