It won't (until pigs learn to fly); what I am arguing is that
for HTML5+, browsers should refuse to render non-well-formed
documents.  All extant (HTML 4.01-) documents would continue
to be renderable and rendered for the foreseeable future, but
w.e.f. HTML5, non-well-formed HTML5+ documents would never be
seen by the end user,
