My understanding is that XSLT's "HTML" support is intended for HTML4, i.e.
SGML-based HTML. HTML5 has a whole new syntax with all kinds of weird things,
like support for MathML and the special needs of void tags in such foreign
content contexts, the weird behaviour of "<!--" in <textarea> and <script>
blocks, and so on.

I agree that outputting invalid HTML5 is not a real solution, I was just
suggesting it as a workaround until XSLT is updated to support HTML5.

HTML5 is not intentionally designed not to be compatible with XSLT, but
compatibility with XSLT is definitely not a goal.
