I'm working on implementing the HTML5 parser in Emacs Lisp. I've got
the tokenizer implemented and passing around half of the html5lib
tokenizer tests. Its interface will be similar to your xmltok.el, so
eventually it'll plug into nxml-mode (or, if nxml-mode proves to have
to many XMLisms baked in, a similar mode).

For now, I've got the XHTML5 .rnc schemas plugged into nxml-mode for
XHTML editing.
