Yes, the author is rather enthusiastic about the new draft. He
apparently does not have any direct experience with it, though. It is all

on writing proper HTML as well. Some of his comments regarding the
structural aspects are a bit off.
XHTML 2 seems a language for machines, a lot like XML is. Hand writing
XHTML 2 would be a real pain.
The author repeatedly mentions how it is a more suitable output format
for documents stored in XML, or to replace XML as the primary storage
format. In other words XHTML 2 is for publishing programs that expect a
document to output to at least two formats, say print and web.
The "XML events" aspect appears very promising. A seems a bit like SAX2.
