So extending HTML, XHTML, and DOM and CSS are all within the scope,
but XML not. What is the motivation for this - you're happy to
change the "NOT SGML" part of the WHATWG doctype, so changing the
basic conformance requirements underlying HTML isn't a problem for the
WG, could you explain why changing the basic conformance requirements
underlying XHTML are out of scope?
