I can appreciate your concern over bandwidth, and I aagree that HTML should
not become unnecessarily verbose, but I think the best way to reduce
bandwidth is through enhancing HTTP. The improved cache control mechanisms
in HTTP 1.1 should make more difference than changes to HTML could.

As an aside, my reason for saying tags should not become *unnecessarily*
complex is more a matter of useability of the language.
