This question sounds so stupid that I didn't want to ask it in public.

Many web-related languages that have idiosyncratic syntax also provide
an XML surface syntax. Examples are Turtle (RDF/XML), xquery, OWL 2
(OWL/XML). To ensure that HTML5 can participate in XML pipelines in a
standard way, wouldn't it be a good idea to have a standard XML
surface syntax for HTML5, with semantics preserved over round trips?
Perhaps this even could be done using a set of extensions to XHTML.
