Hi Chris,

Do I understand it correctly that the following is your proposal for HTML  

   1. Microsoft implements HTML5.
   2. Microsoft ships an IE release which triggers "HTML5-mode"
      when a page uses <!doctype html5>.
   3. Microsoft fixes bugs.
   4. When more than 0.5% of the content out there uses
      <!doctype html5> Microsoft stops fixing bugs.
   5. Back to step one incrementing the HTML version number by one.

(Instead of <!doctype html5> some other identifier could have been used of  
course, such as the suggested <!doctype html> or <!doctype html><html  
version=5>, etc.)
