One more thought:

How many validators can validate XHTML 1.1?

MSXML bags it because it doesn't accept defaulted xmlns attributes -- and
since validation is all XML 1.0, I can't see why that should have bearing on

How many DTD/schema editors can edit the XHTML 1.1 (e.g. Modularization)
DTD? None I've found.

This is a disaster. You have a full W3C recommendation for the latest
_XHTML_ of all things -- not like its intended to be some fringe
specification, and nothing seems capable of dealing with it properly. Who is
at fault here?
