Hi,

In the thread on renaming the html element type 
(http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-html/2005Nov/0061.html), Sjoerd

It is not necessary to get rid of the head, just because it is possible to 
do this. Some people may want a clean separation between metadata and 
content, as described in the Head-Body design pattern 
(http://www.xmlpatterns.com/HeadBodyMain.shtml). If there are use cases for 
this pattern, why prevent people from using it?

Regards,
