Reclassified as an enhancement request.

Personal response:

(1) Could you please explain why the XPath 2.0 facility of defining a default
element namespace for unprefixed QNames in an XPath expression is not adequate
to meet the requirement?

(2) XPath works on data conforming to the XDM data model. If you want to define
a mapping from the concept of "HTML document" defined in HTML5 to the concept
of an XDM document, then you are perfectly free to do so, and implementors are
free to implement it. I would think that such a mapping belongs architecturally
in the HTML5 specification rather than in the XDM specification.
