What of modularisation? I remember (half-) reading the
XHTML 1.1 spec when it was first released as a
candidate recommendation. There was stuff in there
about modularisation of XHTML into functional, well,
modules (splitting tags into related groups and
allowing them to be 'loaded' on an as needed basis).

The specification didn't say what this would mean for
developers in the real world. Does anyone know what
the practical implications / benefits / difficulties
of modularisation are? Anyone used it?
