I personally disagree that tabs are purely presentational.  While a set of
panels where you show one at a time is a generic idea that could in principle
be done with @hidden or with pure CSS, the tab strip and its relation to the
set of views is clearly semantic, at least as much as a push button.

Given where we are in the process with HTML5, and given that this is a new
feature request, I recommend deferring this request to a future version of
HTML.
