So, as has been proposed, things like specific CSS properties for
styling date pickers, will be raised in the W3C CSS WG ?

That doesn't really seem to be within the charter of the CSS WG,
although I suppose that can be taken in hand with the (hopefully)
renewal next month.

So there'll be no changes to the SGML declaration, and we'll still get
to use SHORTTAG and stuff?

However, your argument about changing XHTML also falls down, in that
it's XHTML which requires complete failure and no rendering in
response to XML WF's errors - since SVG recovers much more gracefully
from XML WF errors.   So you wouldn't be changing XML, just XHTML,
something you're already doing.
