Why bother migrating?

And even when finished, will it be relevant for the web?

As someone who himself spent perhaps 2+ years working on XHTML2, I must
admit it is improving, but in the end, the constraints being pursued are not
conducive to something which will be practical for the web.

In spite of that, there are some good ideas in XHTML2, and if we can reuse
them as necessary, that certainly wouldn't hurt.
