Thanks for sharing your views. I asked because I'm generally coming from
this perspective:

* authors have the freedom to express themselves as accurately as they
can, typically within the scope of the language (HTML5).

* developers building flexible and smart tools, eg. if an author uses
something that the tool doesn't recognise, don't do draconian error
handling, work around it instead - there are plenty of lessons learnt on
Web publishing, browsers, and (X)HTML.

* there are more authors than tool developers, hence favouring authors'
expressibility over the inconveniences that developers may have to face.
