It is not SGML, for sure. That's why HTML5 has a comprehensive HTML 
parsing specification that describes how implementations are to parse 
HTML. Thus, conforming HTML5 UAs will be able to process the HTML found on 
the Web. Whereas conforming XML UAs cannot in general process the majority 
of the XML found in feeds, despite feed UAs processing them fine.

It isn't particularly important to me whether you believe that XML is used 
on the Web or not, though. :-)
