Arguing this here is not going to have any effect. If you want to actually 
have your opinion taken into account, please join the HTML working group 
(anyone can join, it's free to join). There are people strongly arguing 
that HTML should be a purely presentational language, much, much more 
presentational than the proposed WHATWG draft. In fact, unless someone 
argues against it, it's likely that the W3C spec will be even less 
semantic and more presentational than the WHATWG draft. So if you think 
the WHATWG draft is already too presentational, I really encourage you to 
make your opinion known in the HTML working group.
