Is there reason to believe HTML could change the default behavior safely, even
though CSS cannot?

HTML5 does not have any rendering requirements, since it is a
device-independent technology and a conforming implementation could render very
differently from what is typical, or not at all. In the rendering section, it
does describe a recommended default rendering, based entirely on CSS. It
doesn't have an alternate description of rendering in non-CSS terms.
