I don't see how lack of support for modularisation is an issue, the 
likes of Opera and Mozilla are quite happy to deal with XHTML 1.1 apart 
from their lack of support for Ruby Annotation[1].

Certainly I agree that it must remain in the 
http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml namespace (when sent with the 
application/xhtml+xml content type, as opposed to text/html) in order to 
be backwards compatible.  If Ruby Annotation can use the XHTML 1 
namespace I don't see why Web Forms 2.0 can't.
