That was my thinking yes, there are too many documents currently written 
in XDoc to demand they change to XHTML. And yes, it will be a subset of 
XHTML, the minimum needed to get things done the way they are at present.

Having said that, there are XHTML editors and the differences between 
XHTML and XDoc are very small. So I imagine we would provide a converter 
of some description so that projects can switch to using XHTML as their 
native form if they so desire.
