Which brings *me* back to my ongoing question: why should we care about
validity (conformance)?  Google doesn't and it does not seem to be
impeding them any.  It makes the discussion surrounding @summary et al
moot: if I continue to use @summary in an HTML5 the document it's
non-conforming.  So what?  It works for my intended audience, and that
trumps some ideal of conformance that seems to be almost meaningless in
practice.  I get that it is "bad", but what does "bad" get me (vs. what
being "good" will get me)?

Or am I missing something?
