I agree with Jirka.

Note that even if the user is dealing only with HTML documents s/he may have to work with the XML syntax anyway (linked rules).

Personally I think it is perfectly OK to favour XML over HTML in spec as long as spec provides clear definition on how to use ITS in HTML5. Given HTML limitations some things are complicated and sort of hack in HTML, so we don't have to pretend that HTML provides same support for ITS as XML.
