In this proposal, HTML would turn into a templating language.  A template is a perfectly valid document specification.  You see document templates everywhere, at the office supply store, in Adobe inDesign, and so on.  

Besides, when was the last time you actually wrote a static HTML file?  Does anyone do that?

For every web site, people actually write templates, not HTML code.

This proposal standardizes on the idea of using HTML for templates.
