No, semantics don't have to be commonly known to be existent. They're 
not as useful then, but that's not the point.

|class| has also implicit semantics: two elements in the same document, 
which share a class, have /something/ in common, just like two elements 
inside the same |div| are grouped for /some/ reason.
