I think that's effectively an instance of HTML being created by a
wysiwyg editor (a user creates a wysiwyg Word document, which is then
automatically converted to HTML), an exception which is already being
dealt with.

It happens to be a batch process (with the HTMLification being
undertaken by somebody other than the document's original creator), but
that isn't really different from a document's creator choosing 'Save As'
in Word (assuming the existence of some future release of Word which
follows the HTML5 spec).
