JSX is more inspired by an obsolete standard called E4X which in fact uses JS for processing XML. So in that sense it is indeed XHTML, but just because of the fact of processing XML. I don‘t think that the React team focused on XHTML because they thought it should be pushed, but this is just my opinion 😊
