Right near that, you'll see:

"An XML declaration is not required in all XML documents; however XHTML
document authors are strongly encouraged to use XML declarations in all
their documents. Such a declaration is required when the character encoding
of the document is other than the default UTF-8 or UTF-16 and no encoding
was determined by a higher-level protocol."

Strongly Encouraged, is the key words in there. :P
