No, Henri was right. I did mean the serialisability. It may have been
clearer if I'd said "that would be another incompatibility between the 2
[syntaxes or serialisations]" instead.
In HTML5, HTML and XHTML are just different serialisations of the same
language. However, for reasons mostly related to parsing, there are
some differences in what can be represented in each. e.g. Namespaces in
XHTML, but not in HTML; and <noscript> in HTML, but not in XHTML.
