Well, in fact no :-)

We can do (2) right now, but use XHTML1.0. When we switch to XHTML2.0 as 
an intermediate format, it will be then trivial to add it to the DTDs 
under XHTML.

Basically .xhtml will work exactly like xml works now. We could in fact 
use the current .xml extensions, but xhtml has it's own extension and 
media type, so I prefer to do as outlined above.
