To me, there are more urgent areas of progress needed:

  * SVG implementations
  * XForms specs and finalization (yes, part of XHTML 2.0, but separable)
  * GUI widgets

But perhaps XHTML can help with:

  * Richer metadata primitives (who created this page, with what tool, 
on what date, ...)
  * Richer linking primitives (next page, previous page, top page, 
printable version, owner-frame, ...)
