Clearly it's not obvious, since a number of people are disagreeing.

In particular, I think that a media type registration only needs to define 
how to process existing markup, and how to generate new markup. Unless you 
can provide a concrete example of how HTML5 fails to do this, I believe 
the spec as it stands is a suitable MIME type registration.
