That is a consensus of the uninformed, Ann. 
That is how we get into these traps where 
mutual self-referencing creates an illusion 
of spec-based design.  The question here is 
simple:  are these arc forms renamed and 
slightly weakened such that what we end 
up with is more complicated and less powerful?

No, see XHTML Modularization conformance definitions, 
http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml-modularization/conformance.html#s_conform . 
These terms have been around for several years now (without argument from 
the community).

argument about application construction.
