So that's what the SGML ERB is for. How does this relate to discussions of
HTML and HTML CLASSes?

Better than nothing. =) I'm only half kidding. Without a concrete proposal
for a mechanism to attach semantics to new elements (i.e. archforms, DSSSL,
CSS+), it's the "best we've got." My understanding is that the SGML ERB will
come up with that proposal. (although I'd love to know their predicted time
frames...)
