I don't think the HTML 5 spec should make this claim without
some detailed justification, and I'm not sure the detailed
justification is worth the screen-space; I'd rather just delete it:

"For instance, forum sites, auction sites, search engines, online shops,
and the like, do not fit the document metaphor well, and are not covered
by XHTML2."

Likewise, it's not clear to me that XHTML2's hyperlink features
etc. are better; I'd rather delete this too:

"XHTML2 [XHTML2] defines a new HTML vocabulary with better features for
hyperlinks, multimedia content, annotating document edits, rich
metadata, declarative interactive forms, and describing the semantics of
human literary works such as poems and scientific papers."

for reference:
