My bad - I misinterpreted this statement:

"* If you ever switch your documents that claim to be XHTML from 
text/html to application/xhtml+xml, then you will in all likelyhood end 
up with a considerable number of XML errors, meaning your content won't 
be readable by users. (See above: most of these documents do not validate.)"

to mean the xhtml will not validate as xml, but really Ian Hixie is 
stating that (he has found) the majority of documents claiming to be 
xhtml do not validate and so in futture will not render as 
application/xhtml+xml by xml parsers.

For the record: Paul *Cowan* is right, Paul *Bennett* is wrong ;)
