Initial Scrum includes XP practices

The following quote explains many of the existing problems of agile methodology.
"I learned from Jeff Sutherland that the first Scrum actually did all the XP practices. But Ken Schwaber convinced him to leave the engineering practices out of Scrum, to keep the model simple and let the teams take responsibility for the tech practices themselves. Perhaps this helped spread Scrum faster, but the downside is that a lot of teams suffer because they lack the technical practices that enable sustainable agile development."
Henrik Kniberg "Scrum and XP from the Trenches
