HTML5 already has too many semantic tags. Besides, it already has a number
of mechanisms to adequately mark up any semantics you wish:

   - use @class
   - use elements or attributes from a distinct XML namespace (using HTML5
   with XHTML syntax)
   - use a separate XSLT stylesheet to associate semantics
   - use RDFa
   - use data-* attributes

No need to invent a new wheel.
