Actually this is one of the oldest input to XHTML 2.0 (e.g. [1]),
especially from the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).  Indeed
this idea is on the agenda for XHTML 2.0, and the HTML Working Group
recently had a joint brainstorming session with the WAI Web Content
Accessibility Guidelines Working Group, including this topic [2].
IMHO, this is one of the most likely change in XHTML 2.0.
