HTML5 defines a mapping from the parsing algorithm output onto Infoset  
and there's a mapping from the Infoset to the XDM, so this is already  
covered in theory. The Validator.nu HTML Parser comes with a sample  
app that allows the JDK XSLT processor to be used with HTML5 input, so  
it is covered in practice, too.

(Attributes of the form xmlns:foo get dropped on the floor in the  
process, though.)
