  Don't you mean that "HTML5 may, in the future, consist of ... "?

  It /still/ lacks the credentials of a standarization organization,
  and I am rather tempted to point you to

     http://europa.eu/geninfo/accessibility_policy_en.htm

  in return. The fact that the W3C has made haggish out of WCAG 2
  does /not/ mean it is a remotely good idea to create a parallell
  "standards" organization with no official backing.

  However, anyone is of course free to do so. The WHATWG has a
  proposal which may just be the basis for a new HTML5 - fine.

  Until it is, I repeat my caution: don't implement things that
  may, or may not, be either a good idea /or/ a standard. We
  have, as it were, "... far to go before I [we] sleep".
