Whatever the outcome from this debate, the collective goal is 
conformance to HTML 5, compliance with WCAG, improved accessibility and 
enhanced user experience. Currently there is a degree of dissonance 
between how individuals see each of these goals being reached and also 
at what node in this hierarchy each of these elements sit. FWIW I would 
put the last two at the top of this hierarchy and wish to note that the 
creation of accessible websites that are usable by a very wide audience, 
and can provide a positive user experience is possible without 
conformance or compliance to either.
