Have you tried? I created a parsing tool that can be used (and is used on  
a small scale) for data mining, validation, checking implementations, etc.  
that does not support scripting and our team did not have much problems  
with the specification. In fact, it was quite a straightforward process  
and where it was not we provided feedback to improve the specification.  
Others have done similar things.

http://code.google.com/p/html5lib/ is that project by the way.
