I sometimes create Web pages in OpenOffice.org Writer/Web but want to make the pages conform to my site CSS. I find that to spot all the cruft it's not sufficient to look for markup that HTML5 bans but that looking for style="..." and <span> is also necessary.

We already experimented with banning style="..." and that didn't go down well.

It's not clear that the validity definition is the right place to address the case where the author wants to avoid cruft to make the markup maintainable. I definitely want to have tools that help with that case, though.
