Why not?  HTML4.01 is happily parsed by IE8 [!].  :-)  There's
no reason, apart from more flexibility, RDF [*], additional
capabilities, easier-to-parse tags, etc. etc. to adopt
XHTML/HTML5, now, is there?

Can't be too careful.  OSS might benefit from the
adoption of 340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456
addresses [+] (give or take a few billion), after all.

[rest snipped]

[!] and that's about the only thing it happily parses. ;-)

[*] if it's still in use.

[+] 2^128.  This doesn't include such issues as ::1,
    the ipv6 equivalent of .  I'd frankly have
    to look at the details to see what addresses in ipv6
    are unroutable.
