I will only say that builders of smart TVs and other devices that employ
and support HTML in this fashion consider their devices to be "on the web",
regardless of how data is transported or whether the (embedded) browser
supports only a subset of HTML. In fact, most of these devices *are* using
IP. Further, show me *any* browser that supports all of HTML5 -- there
aren't any.

So whether a smart TV employs walled garden HTML in some cases or arbitrary
HTML in others does not mean it is not part of the web. Using web
technology makes it part of the web.
