This section is hardly for authors hand coding their code, but has to  
be reviewed indeed. For example, …

[[[Documents must consist of the following parts, in the given order:
    1. Optionally, a single U+FEFF BYTE ORDER MARK (BOM) character.
    2. Any number of comments and space characters.
    …
]]] -- HTML 5

… will raise eyeballs to someone using an editor. First what does  
that mean this "U+FEFF BYTE ORDER MARK (BOM)"  and how do I type in  
my text editor. :)

For tutorial, this section is necessary. The one about semantics of  
HTML.
