Well, HTML5 is only a draft today, but there are several recommendations for 
XHTML.
For advanced semantics it would be a good thing to use the XHTML+RDFa 
recommendation. this could be used to reference semantical meanings from 
HTML5 or other languages. This is a much better and general and recommended
approach than using HTML5 documents for more than testing the HTML5 draft
itself ;o)


By the way - the SVG tiny 1.2 test suite contains several tests, that could be 
resused easily to improve the SVG 1.1 test suite as well. For example
most of the animation tests I provided apply to SVG 1.1 as well, because there
are no relevant changes - and those can be surely used to improve SVG 1.1
viewers, what would be pretty useful for authors of course ;o) And for a test
suite this is much more useful as renaming tests or to create yet another
test frame or to test WOFF or HTML5 drafts in an SVG test suite now ;o)
And this could be another chance to finish the work of the SVG group on
the SVG tiny 1.2 test suite (in a beta stage since 2008?)  somehow ;o)
