Correct me if I'm wrong, but the mentioned three sentences in the Doctype section do not cover reasons for any simplification (leaving out Doctype identifiers, for example). Not necessarily a must in that document, but it's a significant difference to HTML 4 and probably beneficial for understanding HTML 5.
