Just to make sure, why do we remove at least some presentational
elements and attributes in HTML 5 [1], yet keep all the event handler
attributes [2]?

It seems the key problem with both types of markup is the same, namely
allowing a violation of orthogonality (or separation of concerns)
which impairs maintainability [3].
