So assuming that people deem the HTML 4.01 Recommendation to be
"applicable", the much debated @summary, @longdesc and @profile may all
be used in HTML5?

A document using @summary is conformant if and only if the person
assessing the document's conformance deems HTML 4.01 to be applicable?
The observer influences the outcome of the experiment?

Perhaps HTML5 is very quantum physics after all...
