Yes, I think you are wrong.

  * *Most* ruby in Japanese should be marked up with Level 2 markup. This
    isn't a rare use case by any means.

  * Pretty much all of the semantics of BibTeX and DocBook can be captured
    extending HTML elements with a microformat. That's not the case for the
    structures of complex ruby.

  * Crossword puzzles and sudoku are handled better by table markup than most
    other games are handled by HTML markup, and for how common they are
compared
    to other use cases for HTML, strike me as adequately supported by HTML
    already.  But if you think it's insufficient, file a separate bug.

  * You don't know how the needs of HTML will evolve over time. All you can
    anticipate is what's appropriate for it to include right now. I'm sure that
    12 years ago, many of the things included in HTML5 would be considered
scope
    creep from what was supposed to be a simple document markup language.

The top complaint the CSSWG got from the publishing industry in Japan, btw, was
that the way ruby influences the line height is wrong. I think that's a fair
indicator that correct support for ruby is important to them as they move more
of their content to HTML.
