You write "Typically, Working Groups are rechartered if there is active 
interest in their work and they are close to their goal, as the XHTML 
Working Group is. Another year of effort would probably be sufficient to 
finish the XHTML specifications."

Although not as high-profile as a REC-track group, there is nothing to 
stop a group of like-minded W3C members single-handedly chartering an 
Incubator Group (XG, see http://www.w3.org/2005/Incubator/ ) to try to 
progress the XHTML efforts. Perhaps - in part - by defining a recovery 
model for ill-formed XML markup?

Ducks, runs for cover etc.,
