is HTML not a standard ontology of document elements? 

personally i'd advocate gutting it to just <div>s. then you could get rid of the SGML/XML baggage/overhead/ugliness in the syntax entirely

we'd prob ably be still figuring out agreeble ways to map sexps() to on-screem/mem DOMish trees, instead of have a usable web

or justifying the validity of RDFa as a use case enable to various gods instead of dragging vcard's to our email apps..

how would one create something like the web without a hype machine like the web to catapult it into instant ubiquity?
