I don't think there is actually that much difference between email
newsletters and web pages anyway.  What tends to affect whether one
uses formal markup is the immediacy of the document.

However, the demand for a new, simple for users, markup language
reflects the typical natural history of computing standards, which
start lean and mean and bloat to the point that newcomers fail to
realise the original intentions and eventually come up with a new
solution to the original problem.

(Markup in this form on the web ought to be achieved as the result
of the final styling for rendering, not as the interchange format.)
