HTML5 says (in the section "Authoring tools and markup generators"):
"Authoring tools are expected to come in two broad varieties: tools that
work from structure or semantic data, and tools that work on a
What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get media-specific editing basis (WYSIWYG). The
former is the preferred mechanism for tools that author HTML, since
the structure in the source information can be used to make informed
choices regarding which HTML elements and attributes are most appropriate."

AUWG Comment:
It seems subjective to prefer an editing mechanism. Perhaps this should
be clearly marked as "informative".
