How is one meant to interpret that utterance ?  Does it mean
(for example) that you would like to be afforded special
treatment, and that HTML 5 should be specified in such
a way as to ensure that you are minimally inconvenienced,
or is it to be interpreted in a more general sense, that
HTML 5 be so specified that any markup practice which is
valid for HTML 4 should also be valid for HTML 5 ?
