FWIW, the deliverables section our charter  
http://www.w3.org/2007/03/HTML-WG-charter.html#deliverables does mention:

   "A serialized form of such a language using a defined,
   non-XML syntax compatible with the 'classic HTML'
   parsers of existing Web browsers."

which sort of addresses that point I think. (Which actually also addresses  
all the debate about draconian versus non-draconian handling come to think  
of it...)
