* authors want to make use of HTML semantic facilities, often receive no
perceptual feedback
 * users want access to semantics encoded by authors even if that information
is meant for fallback or machine purposes
 * when authoring content fallback, authors are not always able to verify the
content except through examination of the HTML source
 * While HTML conformance expressly prohibits certain element hierarchies and
avoids some attribute collisions, HTML currently provides no guidance to UAs on
handling non-conforming content (e.g., an anchor link child of an anchor link)

(see http://esw.w3.org/topic/HTML/RicherUIAccessToHTMLData for evolving
solution proposals)
