It has nothing to do with wysiwyg editors, it is more about the  
quality of the code as defined by a professional corpus. It is  
interesting to see that here a form of versioning is coming back by  
the backdoor.

I would suggest that once "HTML 5 for Authors" is done, the document  
could carry.

	 <meta name="conform" content="html5-bp">

html5-bp = HTML 5 Best Practices. It would acknowledge a set of rules  
defined by the Web community and considered as "good HTML".
