Great, we seem to be building consensus around XHTML IM (maybe it was
not in vain that I wrote this JEP). 

Next question: Are there any changes people would like to see in 
JEP-0071? I found a few nits over breakfast the other day, and I know
the schema needs fixing. Do client developers think the range of 
element and attribute support is too broad, too narrow, just right?
Do we really need <cite/> and <div/> and <q/>? What about the style
properties? Your friendly neighborhood protocol geek would like to know.
