FO is intented to be a platform neutral expression of the style of a
document, one reasonable platform that you might want to render the
document in would be an HTML browser (HTML+css). This isn't totally
unreasonable is it? Actually of course given XML+CSS one might be able
to cut  out the HTML altogether and just CSS style the fo,\ but using
HTML does perhaps offer some fallback behaviour for inconsistently full
css implementations.
