FWIW, div's do have semantic meaning.

And what if you really want to style something, but not attach semantic 
meaning? Or if you want to make your own additional semantics using 
classes? Keeping span is really a good idea!

And: If you don't find them useful, nobody is forcing you to use them.

And this discussion is useless, since neither span or div is up for any 
discussion about exclusion.
