[whatwg] [WF2] Conformance Requirements Issues

In the conformance requirements for Web Forms 2 , it states:
| This specification includes by reference the form-related parts of the
| HTML4, ... Compliant UAs must implement all the requirements of those
| specifications to claim compliance with this one.
Because it says "must implement *all* the requirements of those
specifications" (rather than just all the form-related requirements) and
since there are no strictly conforming HTML 4 implementations in
existence, does this not make it impossible for any existing browsers to
ever conform to WF2?
At the end of that section, it also states in the note:
| Note: Documents that use the new features described in this
| specification cannot be strictly conforming XHTML or HTML4 documents,
| since they contain features not defined in those specifications.
Shouldn't that say XHTML 1.0 or 1.1?
