I did not imply that SH should use everything in HTML5. I thought the
rest of the points I've drafted go together, and makes that clear.

It was about not setting constraints in SH (like n elements to cover
everything there is to cover in the whole scholarly information
universe), and then when something goes wrong, the data pipeline breaks.
It is a given that users and tools make errors. SH will in no way be an
exception to that rule, whether it says 5 or 50 are permitted. In
addition to that, the consequence of such action is that, it prematurely
draws boundaries on what the authors desire to express today as well as
in the future.
