The comparison to Don Quixote is skew; HTML (hopefully) improves while
spoken languages (just as currencies) deteriorate.

Of course, a lot of legacy content will no longer validate with HTML5
validators; but where is the issue? It will still render. After all,
no one would expect Don Quixote or Hamlet to be "valid" according to
modern Spanish and English rules, respectivelly, but people who know
either language are still able to read them. This is an inherent part
of language evolution; and hence is a needed side-effect for evolving
HTML. And we need to evolve HTML, becuase the current standard is over
a decade old, and is falling short to the web's needs every now and
then.

Just my PoV anyway.
