It is of course Well-Formed, but it's not valid, you could indeed mix
an XHTML 1.0 or 1.1 document with other elements and use your own dtd
to make it valid (if you felt a need to).  This wouldn't work with
XHTML 2.0 as is currently drafted though as XHTML 2.0 must use a
particular doctype, I imagine that will change though.
