And suddenly zillions of web sites can't automatically
convert from html4 to html5. Any other suggestion of that kind ?

I thought html5 was supposed to be an evolution of html4, not yet
another purity-focused blurb that forgets about the web as it is
today. Remember we have/had xhtml2 for that purpose. I think one
is enough.
