I'm sort of interested in the transitional period (which could be a 
decade or more, honestly), not in this horizon-like[1] long term when 
all UAs will have a perfect implementation of HTML 5.

It's in the transitional period that there is a problem.


[1] Q: What is the horizon?
     A: It is an imaginary line that delimits what you can see and
        recedes as you approach it.
