Thanks, much clearer now :)

As I have mentioned in my previous message, the cheatsheet builds on top
of Mike's document, so I have some experience with extracting data from
it and massaging it for re-use; and that could indeed be used to
generate content for WPD; but part of the difficulty is that WPD has
already a lot of content for HTML elements and attributes, and I assume
the goal would not be to replace that content, but to possibly complete

At a higher level, I think there are two things WPD can learn from
Mike's document:
* a useful structure for describing HTML elements and attributes,
* data for that structure for each HTML element and attribute
