Would you be able to start a [wiki page on authoring HTML syntax][1].  
It seems that many Web authors have argued in favor of having  
stricter rules for writing HTML. It would be beneficial for this  
group to know what kind of syntax people would like to see and  
document how much benefit it gives to them.

It will not be necessary mandatory but could be a good guide for Web  
Pro authors as a platform for writing HTML.  It could become a kind  
of canonical syntax for Web design agencies. People could say:
	"It is HTML 5 but with the Web Pro syntactic guidelines."
