Oops, I misread the OPs post.

Isn't it the other way round?

Hmm. While I see your point, I would still be suspicious that if you
have nxhtml-mode and iff it comes with nxml-mode, then it would be quite
feasible that depending on load-path settings, you may pick up parts
from the different versions of nxml-mode, which in turn could result in
inconsistencies if there has been changes made to one version and not
the other.
