  I am *entirely* sarcastic - the idea that a structural element is
  dropped because it "renders no differently", then *reintroduced* under
  another name in a future XHTML is ... amazing.

  An element which is commonly interpreted as a "menu" - regardless of
  actual name - and which can contain list items would be a rather
  wonderful thing in my view.

  I can hardly be more sarcastic.
