Hmm the way I understand it.

* HTML Parsing for browsers is good, very good. And everyone  
understands it now. I think most Web designers understood this part.
* At the same time Web developers/designers are asking for clear  
semantics of simple HTML tags with a strict serialization.

Both are not incompatible at all, and that would be a nice compromise.
It is what is proposed in most cases.

Browsers consume HTML.
Web developers produce HTML.
